A great crowd turned out for the second running of the Vienna River 5 Mile Run and 5K Walk, and the morning greeted them all with beautiful weather (a change from last year.) Both events began at the Jackson Jr. High track, ran out and down a short gravel access road and on to a nice flat course. The only real hill could be found as the competitors reached the short climb back the the track for the final sprint to the finish.

Jacy, the youngest in the Christiansen family at 4-years-old (almost 5), finished an impressive 5 mile run for any age
