The Cleve J. Fredricksen Library Loop 5K has become one of the most popular summer races in Central Pennsylvania, and this year’s race, held on July 26, 2014, was no exception.

In the 60+ category, returning participant Gary Grobman finished 15th overall with a time of 19:29.5. A complete list of all race results is available on the Fredricksen website.
