The top three 5K finishers were Braxton Coggins, Bryce Spillane, and Camden Gray, all of Roanoke Rapids.

The event organizers also held a 1-mile fun and walk to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Roanoke Rapids High School.

Signs along the fun run and walk route gave different bits of trivia throughout the school’s 100 years.
