Barli Ross, the Program Coordinator and Paul Finley, the Director of the Antiochian Village Conference Center, welcomed the runners, who registered and warmed up before the start of the race. One lucky young "runner" was pushed along by his mom in a stroller, but the others kept up their own brisk pace through the Village paths just beginning to display fall colors. All of those who ran as a part of the Special Olympics team, have raced in other venues, and some on the team were even former gold medalists.

At the race's conclusion, door prizes were awarded, as well as medals, and refreshments were enjoyed by the participants. Watch the start of the race on YouTube, and view photos of the race on Antiochian Village's News page.
