One hundred and twenty-six competitors gathered in Carbondale's beautiful Evergreen Park for the 3rd annual Carbondale Fit Out 5K Run/Walk. The crowd was treated, pre and post-race, to the blues stylings of Jim Skinner's Rhythm and Blues Band. The 6 pm start time provided lovely weather for a sprint around the edge of the SIUC campus. Army ROTC candidates were helpful at three water stations during the race, cheering competitors on and providing water for the racers. After the race, volunteers handed out water, fruit and cookies to an appreciative crowd. Thanks to race sponsors Carbondale Main Street and the Nightlife Entertainment newspaper for a fun tine in the park!
CWR founder Allison Joseph finished 53rd overall and 2nd in the 40-49 age group.
