Former Fauquier High School and University of Tennessee track star Sarah Bowman Brown served as the race starter and ambassador.

A professional runner with the New Balance, Bowman zipped around parts of the course, encouraging and slapping hands with participants.

During the awards ceremony, the San Diego resident and 2005 FHS grad thanked Race Chairwoman Leslie Wise for inviting her home to help with the event.
