WILLMAR -- Steve Meier swept across the finish line of the Hot Dish Hunger 5k Saturday with a sizzling winning time of 17:26.

That was 28 seconds faster than his first-place time a year ago and nearly three minutes in front of the second place finisher, Mike Hanson of Spicer.

Bri Rohne, St.Paul, led women runners finishing in 25:26. The age-spread was 65 years (Carter Schow, 8, Joyce Van Heuveln, 73).

The event, including a 1-mile walk/run, is sponsored by Eagle Lake Lutheran Church north of Willmar, where Meier is pastor. In addition to T-shirts and age-group awards, the post-race activities include a full brunch. Proceeds go to food shelf programs.
