After a spectacular sunrise, 386 runners made their way around Salem Lake (once or twice). We raised funds to support our charity partners, the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Winston-Salem and the Winston-Salem Street School. And a dedicated band of volunteers came together to keep things running smoothly. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday morning in September!
Here are a few numbers to capture a bit of the day’s achievements …
Amount raised for charity partners: $869
Total Finishers: 386 (up from 375 in 2021)
Winners: Justin Pfruender and Alicia Rider

Volunteers: 30 from TCTC and additional volunteers from the Winston-Salem State University women’s cross country team, who ran three water stops.
