RALEIGH, N.C. – They all gathered at Dorthea Dix Park early on Saturday morning in seasonably chilly temps for early April.

Not deterred by a little discomfort, 1693 runners posted results in the 2016 Rock n’ Roll Raleigh 5K.

It was the first running of the new event that supplemented Sunday’s half and full marathons.

For experienced and new runners, the course provided its share of subtle elevation changes, but there was an abundance of smiles all the way around from start to finish.
