The 33rd running of the Making Tracks 5K was held April 21 at Anniston Army Depot.

The morning began cool, but quickly warmed up and was nearing the upper 50s by the time participants lined up to begin the race.

The course is always a fast one and this year was no different as more than half the field finished in under 30 minutes.

Overall winner was Derrick Clark, who crossed the finish line in just over 20 minutes.

In addition to the race itself, a one-mile fun run was held for children who opted not to go the full 3.1 miles.

The Making Tracks 5K race began in 1985 and has gone through a few changes in the intervening years.

At one time it was a 10K and, for two years, a duathlon with the inclusion of a bicycle course.

The 3.1-mile route began and ended at the installation's Physical Fitness Center and wound through a picturesque portion of the west area.

Gerrad Slaton, the depot's lead recreation assistant, who serves as race coordinator, says the route is relatively flat and easy to race on, since the hills along it have only a gentle rise.

He thanked the numerous volunteers and sponsors who make the event possible each year.

Awards were presented to the top finishers overall and in each age division.
