   Lyman Perry now has bragging rights as he won the inaugural Onomea 5K (3.1-mile) held last month.

    “The Onomea course is awesome, but hard.  Tough uphill on the way back for the 5K race and a screaming descent to begin with,” Perry said.

    Perry, who normally runs much longer distance races decided on the shorter, 5K, after running the Kona Half Marathon (13.1-miles) the week before.

   “I have been trying to do races of varying distances to get my speed up prior to beginning the long slog of Honolulu Marathon training,” Perry said.

   Race director, Greg Lum Ho, was pleased with the course and the results and plans on helping to host it again next year.

   “A lot of people liked the course and, for the most part, we were pleased to host it for the first time,” Lum Ho said.

   Blog photo’s of the Onomea race was provided by Claire Suzuki and to see more of Claire’s work go to www.hawaiianimpressions.com.
