The start of the 2017 Crozet Trails Crew 5k.

Andrew Neils was the male winner in the Crozet Trails Crew’s annual 5K race Oct. 11 with a time of 18:40 minutes. Second was Xavier Alvarez in 19:40 and third was Travis Lambert in 20:31. Jack Burr, a runner under age 12, was fifth overall in 21:40.

First among women runners was Christi Gillette in 23:14; second was Andrea Wright in 23:37, and close behind in third was Nicole Kelleher at 23:40.

It was the first race in several years that was not run in cold drizzle, and the turnout was a record with 145 runners. The 3.1-mile course over the trails that connect to Crozet Park now includes a new start/finish portal.

Zoom Fencing contributed temporary fencing that greatly enhanced the chute to the finish line.
