Students from Winifred Pifer, Georgia Brown, Bauer-Speck, Virginia Peterson, Shandon, and several other schools participated.
High school track coach Ivan Huff served as a starter. He used a flag instead of a starter pistol.
Track coach Matt Carroll coordinated the finish line. Athletes from PRHS served as officials.
The top three place finishers were given medals, although the emphasis focused on participation.
