As the evening air began to cool down from a hot summer day, runners were ready to blister the course during the annual Elizabethton High School football team’s Friday Night Lights 5K run/walk used as a fundraiser for the program.
A full roster of runners and walkers from young to old along with a few tagalongs including family pets and toddlers in strollers took to the street course when the horn sounded. As they returned to the finish line, the Elizabethton High cheerleaders along with mascots Tuffy and Stormy waited to cheer them on through the finish line.
The event was timed by We Run Events.
Ryan Morris from Dryden. Va. ran off from the field to take the overall title. Roan Mountain’s Tyerell Hughes finished second, while Riley Vernon from Hampton took third place.
