The annual WILMA Dash 5K took place on September 21. It started and finished at the Wilmington Convention Center, with runners weaving through downtown and along the Riverwalk.

After crossing the finish line, the women and their supporters celebrated at the convention center for the Health Fest, benefitting Going Beyond the Pink nonprofit.

The top overall finishers were ANN MARIE PIERCE, (with a time of 20 minutes, 22 seconds – a 6:34 pace); CAROLYN BRICE (20 minutes, 32 seconds); and BRITTANY PERKINS (20 minutes, 57 seconds).

BRENDA ESTLACK won the Masters division, with a time of 22 minutes, 41 seconds. And fourteen-year-old KYLIE BRELAND took top place in the fifteen years old and under category.

Congrats to all of this year’s finishers!
