The clouds gave way to partial sunshine for the All Fruit Relay, so named for the fruit batons, ranging from raisins to bananas. The Banana Slugs took top honors with the Rotten Apples placing 2nd. Most teams had 4 runners; other teams had to have a runner run 2 legs of this 4 X 2 mile event. Our youngest entrant, 9 year old Michael Gamble, was instrumental in helping his team finish under the 1 hour threshold.
