Crowds lined the street in front of the park near the fountain at Town Center Park in Suwanee, Georgia this morning for the start and finish of the 2008 Suwanee Day 5K and 10K races. Visitors to the park had a variety of attractions this morning as runners and spectators cruised past the regular Saturday morning Farmer's Market, children played in the fountain and families walked their dogs.
The City of Suwanee along with BodyPlex Family Fitness sponsored the races to promote next week's Suwanee Day event and community fitness. BodyPlex also conducted one of their "BodyVibe" workout classes from the amphitheater stage for anyone interested in participating after the races.
A total of over 600 runners participated in the two races with first, second and third place times awarded for numerous age and gender categories for each race. The fastest time for the 5K race was just over 16 minutes and the fastest time for the 10K was around 36 minutes. The overcast skies and slightly cooler temperatures gave the runners a welcome break from the normal summer heat. Check out this video of photos from this mornings activities......ENJOY!!
