    2008 RAP River Run 5K:
  • The inaugural RAP River Run in June 2008 had a total of 462 runners and walkers far exceeding all our expectations. Participants loved the event and the scenic course.
  • Jacki Wachtel was the overall winner in 2008. The male winner was Jared VanBemmel One runner commented You did a fantastic job (ole pros) never would have known it was your first event by the ease in which you guys handled everything.
  • With the amount of runners participating you didn't run out of anything. I can't imagine how you'd improve but I bet you do! I'll bet one day you're a premier event in Florida maybe even nationally.
