Noyo Headlands Race

The first annual Noyo Headlands Race was held on September 23.

The crisp autumn morning quickly warmed as racers followed a 5K and 10K course along the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

The group of 67 runners was a mix of local and out of town visitors. A man from British Colombia, in town with his wife who is participating in the Mendocino Art Center’s Open Paint Out, used this opportunity to sign up for the race. Afterwards, he wanted to be signed up for next year’s event.

Matthew Bennett and Michelle Kluskiewicz were the overall male and female winners in the 10K category. Sixteen-year old Misael Triplett won the overall spot in the 5K male division and Teresa Meche took the overall female 5K.

Everyone had a great time. Plans are in the works to expand the race by adding a half marathon next year.

Proceeds from this event benefitted the Mendocino Coast Hospital Foundation.

The steering committee thanks everyone who participated and all of the hard working volunteers. Special thanks to the race’s sponsors: Arguelles Photography, Big River Realty, Ken Baumgartner DDS, Computaccount, Harvest Market, Kalina and Kalina Law Office, Jone Lemos Esq., Matson Building Materials, Jon Melcher CPA, Mendocino Sports Club, North Coast Segway, Pacific Physical Therapy, and Thompson’s Porta Septic Service.
