Prime Inc hosted the Over the Road and On the Run Prime Gets Fit 5-kilometer race at its Springfield MO headquarters recently.
The race was organized to wrap up National Truck Driver Appreciation and Wellness Week. A trucking company that focuses on driver health and wellness, Prime conducted the race as part of the wellness programs it already has available to its drivers. The race was open to Prime’s driving associates, non-driving associates, and their families.
Nearly 40 participants, including two Prime drivers, took part in the race. John Murray (fleet manager) and Annclaire Clay (driver personnel associate) were the top overall male and female winners. Prizes were also given to the top two male and female winners in each of several age groups.
Other winners were: Cole Hunt and Emily Neal, for the 11 and under category; Nathan Thoenen and Autumn Rodden for the 21-30 age group; Damian Probstfield and Jennifer Sanderson for the 31-40 age group; Brad Quinn and Huong Doan for the 41-50 age group; Mario Almendarez and Tracie Rodden for the 51-59 age group; and Margaret Banning for the 60 and above age group. Prime driver Mario Almendarez finished the race in 21 minutes and 31 seconds in fourth place. Driver Glen Vasquez completed the race in 24 minutes and 18 seconds, finishing in 11th place.
“It was a great day for a casual 3.1-mile run, and it was so good to see young children and parents out there completing the entire race,” said Brad Quinn, who works in Prime’s marketing department. “We hope that next year we’ll double the participation.”
