Woodstock 5K in Anniston 2012

The Woodstock 5K was a huge success even though I hated the high humidity.  Over 1,500 people ran the event which was a record!  This event in its 32nd year is organized by the Anniston Runners Club and all of the proceeds went to the United Cerebral Palsy and the Special Olympics.  Both organizations received a $6,000 check!  Along with the Woodstock 5K and the Kidstock 1 Mile race there was plenty of vendors selling merchandise and food.  Waffle House was cooking up fresh hash-browns for everyone and Mellow Mushroom was giving out free pizza.

Course records were also broken this year with the official results having winner Patrick Choptoek at 14:13 and the top female Risper Gesabwa at 16:06.
