Last year, over 100 runners and walkers signed up for this event. Simon Abella set the pace on the USATF course finishing in 19:16. Jessica Abshire led the women with a 25:56 effort. Since this was the first year the race had used this course, both performances are the course records.
Once again, the event will take place at Joyner Park located at 701 Harris Road in Wake Forest
to download a course map.
The event is managed by the good folks at Woodland Baptist Church in Wake Forest. Proceeds will benefit two area ministries – Church NET and Tri-Area Ministry Food Pantry.
Participants in the 5K can either register as a “competitive” or a “recreational” participant. The competitive runners will be issued chips, will receive official times, and be eligible for awards. The recreational runner/walker will not receive an official time but will be able to see his/her finishing time in a digital clock at the finish line.
