NCOBS River Bound Race!

Breaking through the early morning fog were two men in bright green racing t-shirts-ready for racing! Team Landmark Learning (with fresh racing jerseys) represented at the NCOBS River Bound Race 10k at the North Carolina Arboretum on Saturday October 6. It was a great crowd for a first year race; 77 racers were there for the 10k with another 69 for the 5k that also ran that day. The course started deceptively flat for the first mile or two and finished with four or so miles up and down the hills of the Arboretum and Bent Creek. After all was said and done, Justin Padgett, the fearless bandana-wearing director finished 8th in his age group with a time of 56:07.7, while the other teammate racing that day, Jason Carter, finished 2nd overall with a time of 39:58.7. Mairi Padgett and the Padglings were there to provide some race support and post race grub! It was a great race and a great crowd; a big thanks to NCOBS and the folks that put the race together!
