Runners brave cold in Papa John's 10-Miler

The third leg of the Triple Crown of Running started near Churchill Downs, taking running inside Iroquois Park before ending at PJCS.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – It was a rare April snowy morning but it didn’t stop runners from taking on the Papa John’s 10-miler at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.

The third leg of the Triple Crown of Running started near Churchill Downs, taking running inside Iroquois Park before ending at PJCS.

WHAS11 spoke with Saturday’s top finishers after the race including Sarah Pease, who won all three legs of the race series.

“I kinda was just going to do these races going into my track season and so it was just fun to get the win in all of them,” she said.

Michael Eaton, another participant said, “I always enjoy running this race, even with wonderful spring weather like this.”

The Triple Crown of Running helps raise money for the WHAS Crusade for Children.

In its history, the series has contributed more than $1.8 million to the Crusade to help improve the lives of special needs children.
