Runners take on Oil Creek 100 races

With a rainbow filling the sky, Jeff Nelson, of Titusville, passes through the cones at the aid station at Titusville Middle School Saturday during the annual Oil Creek 100 trail runs. The runners had to deal with several overnight rain showers and a lot of mud on the course during the 10th annual race. Nearly 500 runners took to Oil Creek State Park for the event. Runners come from all over the country to take on one of the event’s three competitions – the 50K, the 100K and the 100-miler. (By Richard Sayer)
