Cadence hosted the last 5K of 2015 and the first 5K of 2016 with 75 people participating in each run and the 1 mile walk while others enjoyed the festive atmosphere. Attendees were treated to cocoa, coffee and hot soup while watching the Strip fireworks from the Cadence Central Park.
All routes wound through Cadence’s well-lit, picturesque grounds and featured panoramic views of the world-famous Las Vegas Strip. The running events culminated at the community’s expansive Central Park, where spirits were high as runners enjoyed the Strip fireworks show, a warm cup of soup, hot cider and cocoa as well as New Year’s tunes and party favors.
The fastest time in the last 5K of 2015 belongs Rene Avalos, who crossed the finish line in 14 minutes and 59 seconds. Ana Gomes was the fastest woman with a time of 24 minutes and 50 seconds. The first 5K of 2016 slowed slightly, with Bryce Murry hustling across the finish line in 19 minutes and 29 seconds and Koryn Gontarek taking home first place for the women in 25 minutes and 29 seconds.
