Two Tracy-based groups benefited from the Third Annual Oktoberfest 5k Fun Run Saturday, Oct. 27, during which 99 runners participated.

The run, sponsored by St Paul's Lutheran Church and Bella Vista Christian Academy, was part of the two groups’ Oktoberfest. Entry fees helped raise more than $1,300 for charity, including Building Together Today, which is one of the local groups helped during Saturday’s National Day of Service.

The non-profit helps repair and remodel homes for low-income families and seniors. Kimball High’s water polo teams also benefited from the event.

Paul Reisdorf was the overall winner of the 5K race with a time of 18:56, and the overall winner for the women was Michaela Loomis (22:23).

Women’s and men’s divisional winners included Caitlin O'Neill (23:23) and Will Gilbert (30:18) in the 13 and under age group; Loomis and Cody Miller (19:23) in 14-19 age group; Kari O'Hara (29:29) and Jacob O'Hara (21:59) in the 20-29 group; Jennifer Bamberger (25:35) and Tim Paulson (23:47) in the 30-39 division; Kelly Heightchew (35:35) and Keith Kasarjlan (20:09) in the 40-44 group; Jill Toepher (22:47) and Elvin Low (28:52) in the 45-49 division, Noel Colina (20:53) in the men’s 50-54 group, and Bryan Holmes (30:45) in the men’s over 55 group.
