For this year's RRRC Carytown 10K on Sunday, May 2, the streets of Carytown were replaced by the dirt and pine needles of Pocahontas State Park's Bright Hope Trail, but the running, walking, and camaraderie was just the same. It was a beautiful morning for in-person racing.
237 runners and walkers completed the course. 59 folks posted times for the virtual event. Check out everyone's results.
Congratulations to the top finishers of the in-person race:
First male open - Travis Booker, 36:46
First female open - Linsey Cousins, 42:37
Thank you to all of the volunteers who made this in-person race event possible. Thank you to the rangers at Pocahontas State Park who worked with RRRC to put on the race in this new location. Finally, a huge round-of-applause to race director Anne Brown who led the team that made it all happen.
