2sports 5k
It was a wet start and finish at this years Fiddler 5K and Fun Run. Participants had to brave cool temperatures and heavy rain as they made their way around Smithville.
The Fiddler 5K and Fun Run had to deal with something this year the event has never dealt with before … rain and a lot of it. With over 10 inches of rain recorded in some parts of the county over the weekend, some runners decided not to brave the elements. But despite the dark skies and the relentless downpours, the race went off without a hitch.According to Race Director Tecia Puckett Pryor, 349 runners registered for the race, though the inclement weather kept the actual participation down to 275.
