Fisher shines in glow-in-the-dark race

Veteran road runner Eddie Fisher made his mark in a novel event in Raleigh, North Carolina over the weekend.

Fisher placed 14th overall in 22.22, winning the 60-plus age group.

“It was a certified course with quite a lot of turns and twists, punctuated with two challenging hills which along with dark conditions made it a test. It wasn’t a real fast course,” said Fisher.

“They placed a max limit on numbers of runners at 1000 and 1000 entered three weeks before the event.

Overall winner was Michael Dwomoh in 18.28. First female was Ashley McDuffee in 21.09

It’s estimated that $35,000 was raised for the Easter Seals programme.
