Race Recap: Davidson-Cornelius Day Care Center Town Day 5k and Family Fun Run

Yesterday's Davidson-Cornelius Day Care Center Town Day 5k and Family Fun Run went off without a hitch under puffy clouds and high humidity.  The kids' one-mile fun run kicked off at 8 a.m. and was well-attended by enthusiastic runners, as you can tell from the photo below.

At 8:30 runners lined up for the 5k race at the junction of Main St., Chairman Blake, and South St. in downtown Davidson.  After some back-and-forths between South and Walnut Streets the course worked its way to the back of The Pines and up a long section of Avinger, Pine, and Crescent.  After that it was a nice, long, and relatively flat run on Lorimer to the finish line behind CVS.

Jenny Severns of Greensboro took overall female with a time of 22 minutes flat and Cornelius-based runner Taylor Day took overall (and overall male) with a blistering time of 16:51.

DARTers included Jason Cook with a time of 18:45, Bobby Aswell with a time of 18:56, Randy Aldridge at 19:55, Chad Randolph (a.k.a., Yours Truly) at 20:22, Jim Crotts at 20:55, Todd Hartung at 21:24, and Jean Aswell at 25:48.  Full results can be found at Queen City Timing.  Thanks go to Gabrielle Craig for taking many of the photos.

And away we go!

  1. I hate I missed this one! I can't stand it when the coolest races are held on the same day. Oh well, maybe next year.
