"Camp Hill racers sing this song/ ‘Doo-dah, doo-dah'/ Led a parade of runners 400 hundred strong/O de doo-dah day."

The Fuller brothers, all Penn State graduates from Camp Hill, Pa., hit the Dewey Beach running scene along with their running girls every Fourth of July weekend. On Sunday they ran the Outlet Liquors 5K with all six of them on the five-person leaderboard for men and women finishers.

Brian Fuller won the race in 15:31, followed by Matt Wagoner 15:53, Mark Fuller 16:32, Kevin Fuller 17:08, and Sean Ryan 17:34.

The women’s race was won by Mary Dell, Kevin Fuller's girlfriend, in 17:49; followed by Emily Dubs in 18:37, Brian's girlfriend; Lisa Veneziano in 18:55; Katie Barrett, girlfriend of Mark, in 19:21; and Ali Schappert.

Brant Chi, 49, of Rehoboth took a razzing from is buddies in the local Certified Running Nuts when he won the masters division 19:00 but placed behind Veneziano, 49, as well Dell and Dubs. Brandt was Chi-fileted by three elite women; all that was missing were the fries and Diet Coke.

“It’s always great when the Fuller brothers and girlfriends show up because they're such nice people and have a good time, plus they give a race quality at the front, ” said Race Director Wayne Kursh.

Bryan Mack of Lewes, 24, was the lead local with street cred, running 19:40.

The Fifth Kelly J. Fritchman Memorial 5K will be Saturday, July 12, at Irish Eyes in Lewes. Race time is 8 a.m. A Kiddie K race will start at 7:50.

Proceeds from the race will benefit the Kelly Fritchman swimming scholarship at the University of Delaware.
