Dallas Davidson was a repeat winner in the Ag Days 6k held Saturday with 87 runners registered.

Davidson won the race with a time of 21:21, which was 18 seconds slower than the time he recorded in 2013, the first time the Ag Days race had a length of six kilometers as it moved from Spring Creek Park to the Spring Valley trail, which runs from the city camping area to Willow Park.

He was more than four minutes ahead of second place finisher Clayton Friemuth, a Kingsland cross-country participant this year.

The top woman was Kingsland cross-country coach Amber Uhlenhake, who finished with a time of 26:39, which was more than two minutes ahead of second place woman Sarah Warren. Toni Kolling, who has won the race the past several years, didn’t run as she has been injured the past few weeks.

After finishing, Davidson circled back to help guide in his grandmother, Gladys Davidson, who ran her first Ag Days race.

The 87 registrants equaled the 2012 numbers and was six below the 2013 number of 93. Prior to 2012, the numbers were generally in the 50s or below.

The temperatures were cool and there was no sun, but humidity was nearly 100 percent as fog blanketed the area early that morning. The high humidity made it tough for the runners on the approximately 3.72-mile course.

Following are the results of the race. Age group winners are on the Spring Valley Chamber of Commerce website.
