On a beautiful Friday morning at Leadbetter Beach, the 37th Santa Barbara Athletic Association Resolution Run presented by Elite Performance Rehabilitation Center drew 388 finishers to start the New Year.

In the 5K, Santa Barbarans Andrew Dixon, 28, won the men's race in 16:17,  and Cindy Abrami, 47, won the women's race, clocking 18:48.

In the 10K, Santa Barbara locals Todd Booth, 46, and Drea Schettler, 38, won their races in 36:13 and 40:36, respectively. Booth had impressively doubled back after finishing third in the 5K (16:42).

At the annual Santa Barbara New Year's tradition, runners received a special Resolution Run t-shirt, snacks and drinks, and 17-and-under participants ran free of entry.

The Resolution Run 5K was also the inaugural SBAA Grand Prix event for 2016. The Grand Prix is a fun series of events for local runners to compete against one another throughout the year in Santa Barbara’s best races.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
