ASICS Greenville Track Club-ELITE's Chris Caldwell and Alison Parris both ran to wins in the 8th Annual Benson OctoberFast Twilight 5K in Greer, SC. Caldwell took the lead early and ran just under 5-minute-per-mile pace to win the event with a time of 15:29. Parris was never challenged after a quick start and finished in 17:02, which is most likely the course record (pending further historical review). Both athletes took home cash awards in addition to the German flag awards representing the Octoberfest theme.
