Lincoln County’s Ian Bonner came in first in his age category in the 7th Annual Bayou, Bay, and Beach 10 kilometer run on Saturday, Jan. 28, in Destin, Fla.

His time was 1:02:51 for the 6.2-miler, averaging 10 minutes per mile.

Ian ran the race as part of his quest for the Congressional Award for Youth. He is working toward his Gold Certificate. The Congressional Award requires effort in personal development, physical fitness, voluntary public service, and explorations/expeditions.

Ian planned the family trip to include exploring Destin, observing wildlife, and a visit to the USS Alabama, docked in Mobile.
