Thousands of runners from around western North Carolina hit the gravel Wednesday for the annual United Way Invitational. They ran the 5K course around Southside Park in Newton, which includes three laps around the path behind the National Guard Armory.
Asheville Roberson was the big winner in the event this year sweeping the boys and girls awards. Cole Rains, a junior at Roberson, won the boys race in 15 minutes 51.91 seconds for his first-career win, and Brooke Gordon, a sophomore, ran the race in 17:55.63.
