Results of the Point Lookout Lightning 5k – October 29, 2011 – Old Fort, NC

It was a beautiful setting for this race in Old Fort. Just a few miles off Interstate 40, Point Lookout Trail is a nice, wide uphill asphalt trail that’s more than 3.5 miles long with a great view from the top. For future reference: it’s a great place for an uphill training run.

I didn’t see too many of the usual faces from the Asheville-area running scene. Just a handful (Ken, Sherry, Ron and Mike). And Paul who was doing the timing.

The race was quite well-organized. We road a school bus to the top and we passed a runner doing an uphill workout during our ride to the top. The good news for us: we’re running downhill. I was impressed that they had cleared the leaves from the asphalt trail. Leaves would have been treacherous since there was moisture on the ground and a covering of wet leaves would have made downhill footing dicey.

I couldn’t get a satellite connection on my Garmin (although other runners did) so I was running without a sense of time or distance. It’s a swift downhill, with a few short semi-flat stretches. With all the curves you can rarely see more than 100 yards ahead. But their are some great views along sections of the course.

I’m sure many people achieved a PR on this race. My former PR was 21:52, and I finished in 20:58 today.

Runners: it was a blast. Word is they might have a 10k next year: 5 up/5 down.

Overall results are below, courtesy of Lee Timing. Here are Age Group Results.  Congratulations to Allison Peters as the first female and to Matt Kirk as the first male.  Also a personal congratulations to Sherry for winning her age group and for Mike for winning his age group.
