Cooler heads, and feet, prevailed at the third of three Sedona 5K Summer Series races at Posse Grounds Park on July 25.

Kevin Alvarez, who is getting ready to start the fall season as a member of the Sedona Red Rock High School
cross-country team, sprinted out to take the lead from the starting line, and won the race handily in 19 minutes,
58 seconds.


“I just did this for fun this summer,” Alvarez said. “I wanted to see where I was before the [high school] season started.”


Alvarez said he’s been training all summer, averaging about 40 miles a week.


“I’m pretty happy with where I’m at,” he said. “The hard work over the summer definitely pays off.”
