The Guam National Guard, celebrating its 38th anniversary, hosted its annual Taotaomona 2K/5K Run/Walk on Saturday.
The family-friendly event themed “Serving Our Family, Our Island, and Our Nation” drew more than 1,500 participants.
Justin Gardner, the fastest male and overall finisher in the 5K, in 17 minutes, 29 seconds, tamed the course. Yumika Sugahara, the quickest female, crossed the finish line in 20:50.
Dry-fit T-shirts were available for the first 1,500 registered finishers.
All proceeds from this event will benefit Guam National Guard family readiness groups, which play vital roles on the Guam homefront.
