Nine years after he last competed here while still in college, the newly named cross country coach at the University of West Florida returned Saturday to St. George Island to prove he still had what it takes.



Caleb Carmichael, 29, set a blistering pace in the hot weather as he breezed to victory in the 16th annual St. George Island Sizzler 5K Race.



Carmichael, who last ran the Sizzler in 2004, and won it, while still an undergraduate at UWF, averaged a 5:14 mile as he finished the 5K in 16:16, nearly a minute ahead of 19-year-old Crawfordville runner Stanley Linton, who ran a 17:25.



“For a day like today, I never expect to run really well,” said Carmichael. “But for a hot day and humid, it was good.”

Carmichael, who coaches the Div. II cross country team at UWF, shaved 24 seconds off the 16:40 time he posted to win the Sizzler in 2004.



These days he runs 60 to 70 miles a week, 13 to 14 miles on a long day, many of those miles alongside the Argonaut runners he coaches in Pensacola.



“I try to make an example,” he said. “I’m able to tell people how to do it and show them how to do it. Running with the college kids keeps me young.”



Carmichael, now married with a 6-year-old daughter and a 4-year-old son, set the pace from start to finish, knowing that he could ease off at the end in the August heat.



Race organizer Hobson Fulmer said he was impressed by the strong showing of the field, which comprised a record-breaking 318 finishers.



“Despite the heat these were very fast times,” said Hobson. “It went very well.”



Another 32 runners took part in the One-Mile Fun Run, which was won by 9-year-old David John Miller, of Tallahassee in 7:19.



This year’s race also set a first by using embedded chips in each of the race bib numbers. The Gulf Winds Track Club, which made the race another Grand Prix event, handled the electronic timing. Fulmer said the electronics at the finish line would automatically record the time off the chips, and that there was also a camera set up as a backup plan.



About 60 volunteers, each sporting purple staff shirts, handled everything from giving out waters to pointing out directions to the runners, to serving up the lo country boil at Lighthouse Park following the race.



Representatives from the county humane society, which will benefit from the race proceeds, were on hand to show off adoptable pets to the large crowd.



Carmichael, who said he especially appreciated the unique handmade design of the race’s awards, made it a long weekend for his family, as he relaxed before beginning practice at UWF pon Monday.



A 2002 graduate of Florida High in Tallahassee, he said he’s looking forward to this year’s season, which will include his team taking part in the Florida State University Relays in March, which will showcase some of the best high school and college runners throughout the Southeast.



Carmichael is also working on bettering his best times for the 5K, which included a 15:22 this past spring and a 15:54 last week.
