Kenny Wall Sweeps Again, Inaugural Atwood Races a Flint Mainstay

The end of his college racing days meant more opportunity for Flushing’s Kenny Wall to toe the start line over the summer. College coaches frown upon it when their runners race too often during the base-building phase for cross country season. Wall raced more frequently than most college runners during his time at Oakland University, but his schedule picked up considerably following his final track and field season this spring.

The Atwood Stadium race, which was run on about four miles of the old Tuuri course, was a rousing success. The Atwood race had 992 finishers in the 10K and 5K races. The total reached 1,132 with the children’s race. It was the largest total for a first-time Flint-area road race since the Shillelagh four-miler had 1,496 in...
