5 members from the HRC ran up in Danville, VA in the Run for Justice 5K or 10K on June 17th.
After heavy rain the day before, some of the paved trail was waterlogged requiring runners to hit the dirt in a few places. All added to the fun, in a nice friendly event, now in its 16th year.
Congratulations to Kyle for winning the 10K, and Martin for coming in first master in the 10K. Also age group awards for Tom, Tom and Philip.
