Watch: Runners Brave Rain in Bryan Clay 5K

Wet weather couldn't foil the 2012 Fit4Fall Bryan Clay 5K Run on Saturday.

Despite a downpour of rain, runners of all ages and speeds joined 2008 Olympic gold medalist Byan Clay for the second annual Fit4Fall Bryan Clay 5K Run in downtown Glendora Saturday morning.

The run, where a portion of the proceeds benefitted Glendora Unified schools, enjoyed turnout double the number of as last year's participation, said Clay. Last year's inaugural event gathered 300 runners.

The top men's finisher was Matt Ebiner, 51, who crossed the finish line at 16 minutes and 50 seconds.

The top women's runner was Bethenny Nichols, 27, who came in at 17 minutes and 52 seconds.

Cullen Elementary entered the most runners of all the schools participating in the race and earned the title of "Most Fit School" and $2,500 from the Bryan Clay Foundation.

Los Angeles County Fire Department responded to one race-related injury. The person was treated at the scene, but the extent of the injuries was not immediately known.

What a worthy event created by one Glendora's hometown heros. And cudos to those who braved the rain to participate. Prior to the event it would have been great for The patch to post a street diagram of the race route. From the east side of town I encountered more road blocks trying to get to the Village. Granted, it may have been posted in the Tribune or some where else, but I missed it. No longer take the Tribune anyway. And don't have Time Warner to get channel 3. But the Patch has been one consistent source of timely info. This is not intended to be a critisism, but just a suggestion. Thanx for your consideration in the future

On second thought, the GPD could have provided suggested detour signs, routing traffic appropriately. Then there would not been so many or us making u turns. The cadets at the road blocks were not helpful at all.
