Over 200 runners, walkers and gawkers participated in the 15th annual Grand River Gallop Super Hero 5K Run/2K Walk on Saturday, April 5, at Grand River Health in Rifle. The course was full of super hero runners from Wonder Woman to Ninja Turtles, Spider-Man and the Hulk.

The gallop raised almost $16,000 for Grand River Meals on Wheels of Western Garfield County, which delivers over 1,000 meals a month to elderly, disabled and recovering people in New Castle, Silt, Rifle, Parachute and Battlement Mesa. The race also benefits the Stayin’ Alive basic CPR training program and is the second of the Colorado River Valley Charity Race Series, in which runners accumulate points based on their times in their respective age groups.

The overall 5K winner was 13-year-old Tyler Scholl of Kremmling with a time of 17:00. For the women, Amy Rollins was first to cross the 5K finish line, with a time of 20:12. The youngest participant was seven-month-old Justice Barbata of Rifle, who crossed the finish line in his stroller. The most mature participant was Viola Huber, 80, of Glenwood Springs, who completed the entire 5K.

Grand River Meals On Wheels delivered over 13,000 meals to people and over 6,000 meals to their pets during 2013, with the help of almost 100 volunteers.
