San Ramon Bah Humbug! 5K

Holtz, who’s 26, covered the distance in 16:27 to win by 17 seconds over Robert Martinez, 22, also of San Ramon, who ran 16:44.

Masters runner George Cross, 49, of San Ramon, placed third in 17:20.

In the women’s race it was a matter of age over youth as Carrie Chavez, who’s 47, ran 19:08 to win, but not by much.

San Ramon, known as Tree City USA, is in the San Francisco East Bay area adjacent to cities such as Dublin, Danville and Pleasanton.

Presented by the City of San Ramon to help you start the Holiday Season with a healthy fun run or walk through the streets of San Ramon. Participants will receive a holiday long sleeved t-shirt, goodies and refreshments provided by local sponsors!
