The race itself was conducted and results were generated by the Peninsula Track Club. Conditions at race time were a bit dreary, but good for running – overcast with drizzel, a slight breeze, high humidity and temperatures in the 60s. The 5K course started near the Veterans Memorial in Historic Downtown Smithfield. The 5K course was accurately measured and run as measured, but is not certified at this time.For the fourth year the Wild Hog Run was run simultaneously with the 5K. Runners in the Wild Hog started and finished with the 5K runners, but ran a different course during the run totaling about 4 miles. This was the third year for a scored team competition where the times for the fastest 4 runners on each team was totaled with the fastest time winning. Twenty teams competed this year.
