By 8 a.m. Sunday morning, nearly 50 people in exercise attire were at Chess Park to begin training for the fifth-annual Downtown Dash. Dede Holguin of Santa Clarita was one. “Every chance I get, I try to do something to make me go an extra distance,” she said. The annual 5K run/walk draws hundreds of people to race in downtown Glendale. Proceeds benefit Glendale Adventist Medical Center's stroke services. Holguin, a former Montrose resident, participated last year, two years after joining All About You Wellness Bootcamp.

Marje Koerber Jewel City Kiwanis' most recent program speaker Chad Chaplin talked about his adventures working with the high school division in the X-Cup Great Race from Atlanta, Ga. to Pasadena from June 17 to 30. There were 100 antique cars in the 3,800-mile road rally. No maps were used or allowed; only driving directions and instructions, as provided by the organizers. The instructions are extremely detailed, providing exact car speed, time, distance, and road signs to look for on the course.

A solid weekend for Falcons, Rebels, Tologs and Golden Knights as each had representatives this past Saturday at the CIF Southern Section track and field finals in Norwalk. As per usual, Crescenta Valley was represented well in Division I as Zack Torres came in second place in the 3200. Torres? time was a good one, at 9 minutes, 9.19 seconds, but it was just a second behind Vista Morrieta sophomore Noe Ramirez?s 9:08.08. ?I?ve been wanting a CIF championship my whole life,?

GLENDALE — Karen Rosas wasn't planning to deviate from her strategy moments before taking part in the 10,000-meter race at the California Community College Athletic Assn. Track and Field Championships on Friday night. The Glendale Community College women's distance runner said she was comfortable with her plan of staying in the lead pack throughout the 25-lap race before building separation over the final eight laps. Rosas' move worked, as she clocked 37 minutes 19.69 seconds to capture her first state championship at American River College in Sacramento.

WALNUT - Elation, exhaustion and relief were some of the stronger emotions at Saturday morning's CIF Southern Section Divisional Cross-Country Championships at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut. With a trip to Saturday's CIF State Meet in Fresno on the line, there was a near frenzy as the results for the boys' Division I results were released. Burbank High nabbed the seventh and final qualifying spot with 197 points, outlasting Vista Murrieta, 197-205. Bulldogs Coach Trevor Marca leaped into the air as the official times were posted and ran to announce the tidings.

LOS ANGELES - Since the end of last summer, Kayla Montgomery has experienced her share of discomfort. Forced to deal with nagging pains in her hip and both knees, the talented Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy track and field athlete has still managed to flourish in her multiple races. She temporarily brushed aside the soreness Thursday at the Mission League finals at Occidental College and managed to extend her season in several events. “I had to go out there and push myself through the pain,” said Montgomery, who qualified in the 400-meter race with a fourth-place finish in a personal-best mark of 59.02 seconds.

NORWALK — Cecilia Nicolas hoped to break the Glendale Community College women's track and field record in the 3,000-meter steeplechase, but winning was the only thing on her mind in the middle of the race. Nicolas hit both marks, as she took first and bested the previous record by about four seconds with a time of 11 minutes 06.26 seconds Saturday in the 2012 California Community College Athletic Assn. Track and Field Championships at Cerritos College. "I wanted to break the school record, but at the same time, I wasn't worried about the time, just go and push to the end," Nicolas said.

Come late November, invitations to compete in the CIF State Cross-Country Championships at Woodward Park will be issued to a select few, but on Saturday the revered Fresno course was open to all comers. Several local teams, all hoping to end their seasons there, as well, took advantage of the opportunity to tackle Woodward Park at the 2012 Clovis Invitational. Crescenta Valley High enjoyed strong showings in the Division I Extra-Large Boys' and Girls' races, with the Falcons boys, who are ranked ninth in CIF Southern Section Division I, taking third, while the girls surged to fourth.

FRESNO — With redemption and historic significance serving as subplots to the ultimate glory that the event always offers, the CIF-State Cross-Country Championships came and went on Saturday with the locals involved, for the most part, achieving resounding success. From the fog and cold, emotionally and physically spent, Crescenta Valley High’s Zack Torres emerged with a second place finish in the Division I boys’ race at Woodward Park in Fresno. With shaved heads and black uniforms, the Flintridge Prep boys’ team looked and performed nothing like it did just a week prior during a sub-par division final, reaffirming its dynastic tradition with a stellar second-place finish in the Division V boys’ race.

LA CRESCENTA ? There was no local fire to disrupt the Kenny Staub Invitational this year. The only things on fire were the local cross-country teams. Crescenta Valley High won the boys' and girls' Division I races Saturday, as more than 50 teams congregated at Crescenta Valley Park for the invitational. The meet didn't go on as scheduled last year, as a fire in the area polluted the air with smoke and officials deemed the air quality too unsafe to proceed as scheduled. The event was made up later in the year, but missed some of the original luster, as not all the original teams were able to attend.

JOYCE RUDOLPH Youngsters, get on your mark, get set and go see Blake Edwards' "The Great Race," the next segment in the Alex Family Film Series at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Alex Theatre. A tribute to masters of slapstick Laurel and Hardy, Edwards' spectacular farce stars Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis and Natalie Wood. In 1908 New York, the evil, black-clad Professor Fate (Lemmon) challenges the Great Leslie (Curtis) to a 22,000-mile New York-to-Paris race.
