Run the race and enjoy post-race celebrations after crossing the finish line at Bistro Roca.

The recipients, both photographed with Elaine Lockhart, CCC&TI's Vice President of Continuing Education and Workforce Development, are: Hunter Houston of Granite Falls (a graduate of the Electrical Lineman program) and Luis Sanchez of Boone (a graduate of the Basic Law Enforcement Training program).
