Cardiff Kook race
ENCINITAS — Elite runner Okwaro Rauro, 39, of Oceanside, took first place in the Cardiff Kook 10K at 31 minutes and 26 seconds, which breaks down to an average speed of a 5 minute 3 second mile.
ENCINITAS — Before the race even begins, a completely different, yet equally serious competition has gotten underway.
The first year of the race, Steve Lebherz, co-founder of the annual Cardiff Kook 10K/5K run, wasn’t expecting the crowd turn out they got. It even surprised a lot the churches in the area, too.
