Last Saturday (April 21), Nightlight hosted our 4th annual competitive 5K in Greenville, South Carolina. The race was held at the beautiful Furman University and participants were able to run around the lake on campus and take in the rest of the extraordinary venue. We had around 160 runners in this year’s event. Participants ranged in age from our youngest being only a few months old to our oldest who was in her 60’s. The event was geared towards families, but also attracted local running competitors Bill O’Shields and Elliot Taylor.
This year’s event was a huge success. Over and over again we have heard what a truly great time families and runners had during the race. We have also heard numerous times that people cannot wait to participate next year!
We want to take the time to thank our amazing committee; who sacrificed months to plan and prepare for the day; Furman University, for a great location; and Go-Green Timing for helping us make this year’s event a hit. We look forward to another great race next year and hope for an even bigger turnout!
