This year’s Grand Slam was terrific! We saw Shannon Steiner and Brandon Page cruise to the championship and receive the coveted Louisville Slugger Bats for having the fastest cumulative times for all four races! We also saw a crop of young runners complete all four races! The future is bright for The Oldham County Grand Slam! Invite a friend to join you next summer as we do it all over again! We can’t wait. Enjoy these pictures from the Trooper Island 5K, the final leg of the Grand Slam.
