Lightning 5k – October 29, 2011 – Point Lookout Trail – Old Fort, NC

The Lightning 5k

A few years ago I would regularly complete a 5k in the 22-something timeframe. The last couple of years I’ve been lucky to achieve 23-something (in my latest attempt – the JBL Memorial 5k – I had a 23:59 on my watch but the official time was 24:01).

Well I’ve just learned of a race that has 22-something written all over it. It probably has PR written all over it and if I can get under 21:52 this one can be my PR.

The race is the Lightning 5k on October 29, 2011. It’s at Point Lookout Trail near Old Fort, NC.

From the race website:

The 5 kilometer point-to-point course starts approximately one mile above Point Lookout and follows the Point Lookout Trail down to the base of the trail, approximately 400 meters from the Old Fort Picnic Ground & parking. The course features nearly 900 feet of gradual descent from start to finish.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this elevation chart should seal the deal …
