Perfect day for Knights of Columbus 5K

By David Freeze
For the Salisbury Post
Temperatures in the 50s and a light wind helped produce fast times for those who ran or walked the 4th Annual Knights of Columbus 5K on Saturday morning.
Overall winners were Mason Leach and Molly Nunn. Leach led the men with a time of 17 minutes and 49 seconds, followed by Parker Whitley in 18:12 and Max Patel in 18:42. Nunn, one of the top female distance runners in North Carolina, paced the women with a clocking of 18 minutes and 47 seconds. She was followed by Elizabeth Sisk in 21:36 and Melissa Orr in 22:10.
Cole Shugart led the 4/10ths of a mile fun run in 3:04, followed by Gracie Solomon in 3:39 and Natalie Aswell in 3:58.
Nunn was thankful for the optimum conditions and said, “It was an honor to compete and I am so thankful for the amazing weather and a flawlessly organized event! Can’t wait for next year!”
Sponsors for the event were Kut-Rite Landscaping and Lawn Care, WRIGHTSOCK, James A. Murphy, DDS, Vac and Dash, Rowan Regional Medical Center, Kenneth Washko, DDS, Cloninger Ford, Walser Technology, F&M Bank, Carrol Fisher Construction, The Medicine Shoppe and Kathleen Boyd, DDS.
Race Director Mark Thompson was pleased with the outcome of the race. He said, “Everything came together today to help the Knights of Columbus continue our projects. It was a very competitive and safe race, and I certainly appreciate the participation of everyone.”
