1998-2000 – New Races and New Records

  • SRR added two new races to its annual agenda: Telespectrum 5K (1998) & Run for Your Lungs 5K (1999). Both races started and finished on the Catawba College track.
  • $2,100 in prize money drew 620 entrants to Winter Flight ‘99.
  • Entries were down to 429 in Winter Flight 2000 although temperatures were in the high 50’s on race day. The spring-like race day followed several weeks of snow and ice. Stewart Ellington’s winning time of 24:31 and Kim Certain’s winning time of 28:44 were the fastest times since 1993 (male) and 1996 (female).
  • The 2nd Annual Run for Your Lungs 5K was run on April 8th, 2000 and brought in 121 runners and walkers despite a threat of rain. The course, which the previous year circled the Catawba soccer field, took participants across Statesville Blvd into and around the Salisbury VA grounds. New club member, Robert Miller, won the race with a time of 16:41. Proceeds went to the American Lung Association of North Carolina.
