Screenland 5K champion

cites sense of community

Reflecting on his achievement as he received his Swag Bag prize at the main stage by Culver City Mayor Jim Clarke, Screenland 5K champion Terence Galasso said crossing the finish line first among 3,450 Screenland 5K guests paled to the joy of feeling the sense of community among hundreds of families in Culver City’s Centennial Celebration on Academy Awards Sunday.

“Going into the studios and passing by the entertainment and attractions along the entire course made it one of my most enjoyable races. I felt as if I was part of a large family. Everyone seemed to have a great time,” said the former Boston University distance title holder, who completed the once-in-a-century event on a rain swept morning at 16 minutes, 13 seconds.   Harley Richards placed second at 16:45, followed by Stevie Steinberg at 16:52.

Bridget Blum was the first lady to finish at 17:50.  Rachel Miura took second at 17:56, followed by Grace Padilla at 18:23.  Padilla won the Ladies’ Masters (40+) ahead of Erika Aklufi, who came in at 18:36. TaniaFischer was third with a time of 18:37.  Rafe Emanual took the Men’s Masters title at 17:25.  Steven Dietch placed second at 18:18, and Thomas Schumann was third at 18:29.
