Lions Club's 7th Annual Gem of the Hill Country 5 & 10k Run
Wednesday, October 2, 2013 • Posted October 2, 2013

Runners and walkers from 6 year old Derek Renfroe, to 86 year old Willie Lyle, participated in Mason Lions Club’s 7th Gem of the Hill Country 5 & 10k event, and except for a problem with the timing which has since been corrected, the race went smoothly and successfully. According to Barry Ortner of Copperas Cove, “It was a great and very challenging race.  Your support crew did an excellent job”.

Starting near the old County Jail, participants ran or walked through Mason’s neighborhoods, around the high school, and along the ridge that took them past Fort Mason and one of the most beautiful views in the Texas hill country. Brady’s Liz Lozano said she “enjoyed the run because of the challenge.” Angelina Deans of Voca surmised by saying, “Stuff happens and, I know we all had fun!” I know, Angelina, stuff does happen, and we’ll work to fix that “stuff” so it won’t happen again. And, yes, it was fun for us as well.

Participants who placed in their age division but who did not receive an award at the end of the race, due to the timing issue, will be contacted and their award presented or mailed to them.

Race proceeds will go to non-profit organizations throughout Mason and surrounding counties.

For all that participated, Thanks! And hope to see you next September 27, 2014!
