Rock'n the Roads at Stagecoach

Last weekend more than 200 runners turned out in historic Jacksonville, OR for the Stagecoach 5K and 10K road races. The good weather brought forth the runners, as well as the competition and new age group course records. Thanks for a fine event by co-race directors Steve Buxton and Rich Stanfield. Below are some images captured by Andy Atkinson. More of his photos can be found here. Full race results can be found here.
