Community Members Hit the City’s Streets to Support the High School’s Booster Club

The annual Tiger Run took place last Saturday morning, featuring men’s and women’s 5k and 10k races as well as a 300 meter Tiger Cub race for children under ten years old.

The men’s and women’s races took off early at 8 a.m. while the young ones started at 9:30 a.m. The winners of the men’s 5k and 10k were Jason Duarte and Jose Jimenez, respectively. Duarte ran a 16:10.19 while Jimenez finished in an impressive 37:40.69, a pace of 6:04 per mile. South Pasadena’s Chloe Fata won the women’s 5k in 17:57.70 while Santa Clarita’s Nina Moore won the 10k in 43:45.78.

The route began in front of the high school gym on Diamond Avenue, snaking its way up to Monterey Road, where it headed east before turning south at Garfield Avenue and wrapping around Oak Street.  Where 5k runners veered left through the high school swimming pool parking lot, 10k runners stayed on Diamond, this time heading west on Monterey to Via Del Rey Avenue, where they encountered the testing Monterey Hills.
