From the Archive: FedEx 5K Run/Walk for United Way a great success, over 400 run and/or walk for our common good (video, photos)


The FedEx 5th annual 5K Run & Fun Run for United Way of the Mid-South was a great success yesterday despite uncertain weather at Shelby Farms as over 400 people came to compete and enjoy an afternoon of exercise and activity.

The light drizzle of rain disappeared minutes before the start of the race, giving runners plenty of sunshine and a cool afternoon for the start of the run. You can click the video at the top of this post to see the start of the race, and click on any of the smaller images above to see a larger version of the photos.

This was the first year FedEx volunteers opened the event to the general public, which resulted in many runners signing up yesterday morning. The great turnout produced an exciting field of runners for the 5K.
