10K State Championship

"I just started running a year ago and have run a few 5 Ks, an 8 K, a half marathon and this 10 K.  Of all of the races I have run, this has been the best-- from the transportation to the gorgeous route (and weather helped!).  After running this year, I decided to make it an annual event."

  -- Kellie C.
