The New Year's Day 5K is an exciting and wonderful way to start the new
year. This race is unique in several ways that separate it from other
races in town. Of course the fact that it comes on New Year's Day makes
it unique, but the main difference is the award ceremony which awards
the top 100 males and top 100 females crossing the finish line. Awards
are also given to the oldest and youngest runners and top male and female
Another special part of the race is the amazing continental breakfast
served by our great sponsor Calhoun's. This race is a family oriented
race and will bring runners of all levels, as well as walkers. The long
sleeve shirt given at this race has become a favorite among runners who
have run this race before.
This year's race features a brand new blazing fast loop course on Parkside
Drive starting and ending at Calhoun's, and will start earlier than in
years past, at 9:00 am. The Kids Dash starts at 8:30.
This race will kick off the 2014 KTC Grand Prix Series and the exciting
Team Competition grand prix as well. Bring your families and friends for
a great way to start the new year and lots of fun and good food. -- Eddie

New Year's Day can be quite eccentric, as evidenced by the snowfall a
couple years ago and the mild temps from several other years. Dress wisely.
