A 38-year age gap was found among the top three finishers at the Sunbury 5K Oct. 5, proving you're never too young or old to enjoy running success.

LaQuentin Brown, 15, took top honors in the field of 140 with a time of 17:53. Robert McCoy, 47, was second in 18:07, and Brendan Vasher, 53, placed third in 19:24.

Amy Upshaw, 32, was first among the women and eighth overall in 22:42. Clarissa Morgan, 39, was second in 24:34, and Sharon Colter, 55, rounded out the top three in 25:18.

David Edwards, 57, further reinforced the notion that top 10 finishes aren't solely reserved for the young by placing first in the masters and sixth overall with a time of 22:19. Maria Center, 54, was the women's masters winner with a time of 30:01.

The greatest age disparity was found between 71-year-old Ann Lewis and 9-year-old Camryn Beisch. They were close in times, however, with Lewis logging a 57:22, while Beisch finished in 58:06.
