Race Day Wrap Up
Thank you for coming out
to our 46th event. It was a great morning with mild temperatures.
In 2007, the Fab 5k was the first race that
we both directed and promoted. The race continues to be very
competitive and today we had a total of 355 finishers.
sure you could have asked for better race conditions on a mid August
Being a money race and that it
falls right before the school year helps create one of the most competitive
fields of all the races in the Roanoke Valley. This year the
course was in great shape.
As a race recap:
The race had a
wide range of ages from JR Cooper at 5 years of age to one 73 year
old. There were 86 runners under the age of 18. 46
runners under 20 minutes.
Congratulations to all the first time racers and
newbies to Mountain Junkies events. I hope this race was a positive experience
and that you take on more challenges and hopefully more Mountain Junkies
races in the future.
Whether you are running competitively or just to finish,
participating in a race is a big deal and an accomplishment. You
did something that most people will never do. Way to go! Thank you for coming
You are better than you
think you are,
and you can do more than you think you can.
