The 5k champions were David Quie of St. Paul and Heidi Athman of Willmar.

A total field of 128 finishers was nearly equally split -- 62 in the long run and 66 in the 5k.

The race, held during the Town and Country Days celebration, drew 39 entrants its first year in 2001, according to race director Micah Driscoll. He added that this was the highest number of runners, though last year's event drew 132, including walkers.

Hinrich, 20, ran the flat 6.2-mile race at a 5:51 pace to finish in 36:17. He will be a junior this fall on the Bethel University cross-country team. Van Gulijk, 43, ran a 44:55 for her second win. She won the Mother's Day Marathon at Ames, Iowa, this spring in 3:43, qualifying for Boston.

Quie, 45, hit the line at Pillsbury Park in 19:03 followed by Dave Broze, 50, of Willmar in 19:57. Athmann, 46, of Willmar, ran 24:46, putting her two minutes up on women's runner-up Staci Winter of Andover.

Proceeds will benefit the Pillsbury outdoor pool.
