Bulldog Run Raises Funds for Scholarships

PCC's bulldog mascot, Bruiser, helps runners get the 2012 Bulldog Run 5K race under way.


WINTERVILLE—With a time of 18 minutes and 16 seconds, Pink Hill’s Oscar Gutierrez crossed the finish line 19 seconds ahead of second-place Edgar Bautista to win the 2nd Annual Pitt Community College Bulldog Run, a 5K race to generate funding for student scholarships and educational activities at the college.

While the 26-year-old Gutierrez was the top overall finisher, Winterville’s Elizabeth Turnage posted the fastest time among female competitors. The 35-year-old Turnage, who is a PCC instructor, crossed the line in 22 minutes and 32 seconds – good for eighth overall.

A total of 71 runners competed in the 5K race. Another 15 walkers participated in the one-mile fun run/walk as part of the event while five children took part in the Kids Dash.

PCC Alumni Relations Director Ashley Smith said this year’s Bulldog Run raised $5,170 for the PCC Foundation. She noted the fundraising total does not include in-kind donations, which are still being calculated.
