2014 Freedom Fest 5K Winners

Posted July 10, 2014 by Hilary Wright in Community

This year’s 5K Freedom Fest Run/Walk race represented the fourth year for the event and even though the list of participants was a little smaller, the overall enthusiasm was great. This year fifty-three runners, some hard-core and some just novices, came from a wide geographic area. The farthest was from Memphis, Tenn., and the youngest was only 7 years old. Chasey Peas of Goreville even participated with a broken arm.

Race director, Tara Peas of Goreville, wishes to thank everyone who participated in the race as well as all the tremendous help from the many volunteers. Without this help the race would not have been possible. Volunteers and donor merchants include: the Goreville High School Beta Club; Family Dollar Store of Goreville; bus driver Denny Parrish; Goreville schools for use of the school bus; Leslie Sheets of Tennessee for the timing system; LHW Gym; and Robin Harper-Whitehead, Pam Perry, Molly Parrish, Kim Lingle for registration and scoring.

Tara stated she was very pleased with how smoothly everything progressed and is already looking forward to Freedom Fest 2015. Thanks for a fantastic event.
