The inaugural Double Helix 5k was held this past Tuesday at Hudson Alpha in Research Park at 5:30. This race was pretty unique in the fact it was on a weekday after work. This was a very well put together race as well. This race was part of the Healthy Huntsville initiative so there were plenty of fruit to be had afterwards (and pizza). All finishers received a medal and medals were also awarded to the award winners. The course was also unique in that the last 3/4 miles was on a loop of the helix track behind Hudson Alpha which brought a different challenge. If you didn't do this race this year, I recommend you check it out next year!
