Fulp and Lohr race through two counties to win the Little River 5K

Reed Bingham State ParkThe Little River Run 5K is run entirely inside Georgia's Reed Bingham State Park, but the race still takes place in two different counties. The park straddles the Little River, which marks the boundary between Colquitt County and Cook County. So the race starts in Colquitt County, but most of the running is done in Cook County before the runners return to the west side of the river and finish back in Colquitt County.


Cook and Colquitt had to each take a back seat to another county, though, on Saturday morning, 21 April 2018, when Lowndes County resident Cavan Fulp won the Little River Run 5K in 20:25. Fulp, a student at Lowndes High, lives in Hahira, Georgia. Melanie Lohr, a master runner from Elkton, Florida, won the women's title, placing sixth overall in 25:48.


Finishing less than 30 meters behind Fulp, Cook High cross-country runner Cody Pezent took second in the race, running 20:31. Daniel Carver of Hahira was third in 21:35.


Adel, Georgia master runner Angela Pezent was the second woman and eighth overall in 26:35. Langley Wooten, a frosh-year member of the Thomas County Central cross-country team, was third in the women's standings and twelfth overall in 27:54.


Allen Wooten of Thomasville, Georgia was the first male master runner in the race, placing eighth in the men's standings and tenth overall in 26:52.


40 athletes finished the 2018 Little River Run 5K. A Course/Line, LLC, of Valdosta timed the race and provided finish line services.
