The annual International Days 5K run was held this past Saturday to phenomenal success. The race, which was sponsored by Carbon County Recreation, had 86 participants, ages ranging from four to 65 years old, making it the organization's largest 5K run to date.

The race started at 8 am on the corner of 100 east and 200 north and finished on 400 East near 100 North.

Coming in to win the race was a 16 year-old youngster named Rylan King from Laurel Maryland, with a time of 18:03. Placing second was 15 year-old Taylor Sitka of Pleasant Grove, Utah. Sitka at 18:33. Third place went to Brad Crompton finishing at 20:36.

Also introduced for the first time was "The Taf Athletes Foot closest to your time contest." The contest which was sponsored entirely by the new shoe store in town gave each participant an opportunity to guess the time that they would run the race in. The closest to their actual time without going over received a $50 gift certificate to The Athletes Foot. The inaugural winner was Kacylia Ivory, coming within eight seconds of her actual run time. Other runners came close and their actual run times exceeded their guesses.

Carbon County Recreation took the opportunity to promote their new running club at the race, the Price Area Running Club (PARC) as they are named it was organized by a group of runners led by Scott Merrell. The group is in its infant stages but is looking to broaden their participation and members. There is an annual fee of ten dollars and interested people can call Carbon County Recreation.

The next 5K run will be Saturday, Aug. 15 in Helper. Check in and pre-race instructions will be at 7:30 am with the race starting at 8 a.m.
