More than 300 runners hit the streets of Livingston on Friday night, as a part of the 10th Annual Night Owl Run.

“I think it was fantastic,” said Jessica Wilcox, a facilitator for Livewell49, which sponsored the event.

Wilcox said despite a few last minute changes including the starting line, the event ran very smoothly.

She said that volunteers and sponsors made the event successful.

This was the first year that Livewell49, a collaboration between Park County, the city of Livingston, Livingston Health Care and Community Health Partners, ran the event.

The event raises money for youth organizations across Park County.

In the owl costume contest, Woodsy the Owl, a Livingston woman, won the individual award, and the Hoot Hoot Girls, a team from Bozeman, won the team award.

Overall, there were 328 entrants in the four-mile race.

Each of the entrants is asked to consider volunteering with youth organizations, which helps generate more good will in the community, Wilcox said.

The overall winner of the race was Adam Behrendt of Bozeman, who finished in 24 minutes, 41 seconds. The female winner was Anna Bartholemy of Corvallis, Oregon, who finished in 28 minutes, 35 seconds.

Results in the males over 12 category: Adam Behrendt of Bozeman (24:41.07); Colton McCracken of Saint Albans, Vermont (25:28.53); Rory Egelus of Bozeman (25:53.20); Clay Demastus of Bozeman (26:19.11); and Doug Wadle of Livingston (26:44.85).
