This is a super fast, all downhill 5k. It’s not MOSTLY downhill, it’s all downhill. I ran this race last year and it was a blast. Two days later, it was a quad-killer.
Today’s overall and male winner was Josh Baker from Valdese. Josh is already a super fast runner, so when you combine his normal speed with a downhill course he flirts with a sub-14 minute 5k time. Rumor has it the Old Fort police picked him up on radar and were going to issue a speeding citation but they dropped it because there was no vehicle involved.
Congratulations to Jennifer Owens of Marion, NC as first female. Click here for age groups. Following are overall results, courtesy of Lee Timing.
