Editor's Note: We mistakenly listed the same runner as both the male and female 3rd place. When we get the correct name of the 3rd place female runner, we will add it to the story. We regret the error.
It was a beautiful fall day for a race or two on Oct. 29 in Mount Pleasant. Nearly 1,000 athletes of all shapes, sizes, and ages - many of them in costume - participated in the 2nd annual Skeleton Skamper.
Sponsored by Real Racine and a host of local businesses, the Skeleton Skamper featured 5K (3.5 mile) and half-marathon (13 miles) race courses as well as a Kids Fun Walk.
