Aiken's weekend of races continued with Aiken Electric Cooperative's Run United 5K at Citizen's Park on Sunday, which is a run to help the United Way in their “Living United” campaign.

This is the first year that Aiken Electric Cooperative has done this, and they hope to continue in years to come.

The idea of this run started because of the 5K that the employees of the Aiken Electric Cooperative participate in each year. This event was organized by Robyn McCay and Donna King and both decided to use what the employees do each year and turn it into a fundraiser.

“We hope to provide awareness for the United Way. The Co-op is about community service and involvement, which leads to doing events like this,” McCay said.

There were 44 people who participated in this event, which, according to McCay, is a great turnout for the first year. There was a wide range of ages between 11 and 64. Most of the participants were from Aiken, with one from Augusta and one from Columbia.

“I'm very happy with 44. I'm hoping this will grow from year to year,” McCay said. “We plan to do a similar event in the spring. We're hoping to do a scenic run through downtown Aiken with a 5K, 10K and a 1-mile fun run for the kids.”

Travis Glover was the winner of this year's race and thought the course was a good one.

“It was a flat and fast course. It was a good race for me and a good course. The weather is perfect,” Glover said.
