It took five years to get it done but Kristopher Sandlin finally ran past Madison Courier 10K Run record holder Cecil Franke on Saturday.

Sandlin had been tied with Franke with three career wins each since winning his third straight 10K in 2015. He was denied a fourth consecutive victory last year, but there was no catching the former Scottsburg and Franklin College standout on Saturday.

Now a 25-year-old cross country and wrestling coach at Switzerland County High School, Sandlin ran the course in 33:31 Saturday under hot and humid conditions to score a 15-second win over 16-year-old runner-up Carter Leak of North Vernon. In winning his fourth 10K in five years Sandlin became the only person who has ever outrun Franke in any fashion on the first Saturday in July in Madison.

“It’s a really cool accomplishment but I was thinking about the other guy who was a three-time winner, Cecil Franke, and he’s just a stud,” Sandlin said, showing his respect to the course record holder and former career wins leader from Osgood. “He’s in a league of his own. He could have come out here and won it any time he wanted to — he could probably still win it. I’m just really blessed to come out here and win it four times.”

Sandlin cross country protegé at Switzerland County, Leah Anders, was the defending female winner going into Saturday’s race. However, her bid for back-to-back wins fell short when 48-year-old Cindy Harris of Indianapolis outpaced all women in 41:39 for 16th place overall.

The win was the first in the Courier 10K for Harris after years of participation in the event. She said after seeing somewhat slower times posted by women last year she marked this year’s race on her calendar as her shot to finally run for the win.

“It was a goal this year because I saw that the time last year wasn’t quite as good,” Harris said. “I mean it was something that I was capable of and in some years past I wasn’t even capable of it.”

Harris spends the bulk of her time training and racing in stair climbs, an event that most recently included an event at altitude in Mexico and would have seen her visit China last week if that race had not been canceled.

“I keep doing the same things. I do a lot of stair climbing races so I’ve got a lot of strength for the 10K and I’ve been doing Mexico at high altitude with stair climbers,” she said.

After training and racing at altitude, the hills of Madison came a lot easier even in the hot and humid conditions on Saturday.

“It was a lot of fun. I love going down that hill. Just about when you get tired after four miles you get a little break going down the hill,” Harris said. “Overall I felt really good. There have been years when it’s been a lot hotter. This didn’t feel too bad compared to some of the years I’ve run. I’m really happy. I’ve never won before.”

Anders, now 16, ended up finishing second in 42:35.

“I’m happy with it,” Anders said of the second place. “I’m not really training right now so I’m happy with my time.”

The rest of the top five overall included Dalton Craig, 17, Dupont, third, 34:32; Parker Jones, 28, Sharpsville, fourth, 36:31; and Alexander Hendrix, 16, Paris Crossing, fifth, 37:05.

Complete results are available on our website at www.madisoncourier.com and photos of age division winners and results will be published in Thursday’s edition.
