Run to Destiny’ gets off on the right foot

The Shippensburg Public Library hosted the first-ever “Run to Destiny” 5K Saturday afternoon, June 22. The race/walk coursed through the borough’s streets and Shippensburg University. There were 64 participants in addition to a 1K “Kids Run” held after the 5K. All proceeds benefitted the library’s capital campaign.


A highlight of the race was John Buchheister – aka The Maryland Sutler – running in full Confederate soldier garb. When he was 50 feet from the finish line, he received loud applause after he asked, “Is this the way to Gettysburg?”


The Shippensburg resident also donated the Civil War themed prizes handed out to the winners.


The overall winner was Brady Runk, of Mercersburg, with a time of 21 minutes and 39 seconds. Amy Stahlman, of Shippensburg, was the fastest woman – and placed third overall – with her time of 22 minutes and 49 seconds.

The tentative date for next year’s race is June 28, 2014.
