The Big 5k

The Big 5k is a race in Research Park in Huntsville that benefits the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Alabama. Last year's race was cancelled because of a thunderstorm, so I think that made this year the first annual. The course was not marked quite right and ended up being about 5.3k (3.3 miles) instead of 5k.

The winner was Limestone County's own Andy Davidson of Athens! Andy ran the long course in 18:25. The female winner was Taylor Vroman of Murfreesboro, TN, in 21:40. Overall results and Age Group results are available at the HTC website.
