Molly Nunn, an Evening MBA student at Wake Forest University, continues to gain attention for her running. Recently she was the focus of an article in Skirt magazine. Now, she is being featured in a blog backed by the News & Record, calling her a “top contender” for the Battle of the Triad half marathon in Kernersville. Good luck!
Time to do battle
Runners competing in the Battle of the Triad half-marathon or 5K on Sunday in Kernersville have one important thing to remember:
Set your clocks back before you go to bed Saturday night.
Daylight-saving time will end at 2 a.m. Sunday. So the good news there is an extra hour of sleep.
Among the top contenders in the half-marathon, watch for Winston-Salem's Molly Nunn, a former Wake Forest runner and an MBA student at the school, and Wilmington's Heather Magill. Both could cover the 13.1-mile distance in 1:20. Nunn finished second in USA Track & Field's 10K Trail Championship for women in August.
On the men's side, former N.C. State All-America Bobby Mack of Raleigh could threaten 1:10. Mack recently won the 10K Trail Championship men's race.
Packet pickup will be 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Friday at Off 'N Running Sports in Greensboro, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday at Fleet Feet in Winston-Salem, and race-day registration is 6:30-7:45 a.m. Sunday at the Kernersville YMCA.
