Cov­ing­ton loves its 5Ks, and the New­ton County Home Builders As­so­ci­a­tion re­cently joined in the fun with its “Heat of the Night” run on June 11.

More than 100 run­ners par­tic­i­pated in the race, rais­ing $2,000 for the strug­gling as­so­ci­a­tion, which has seen its mem­ber­ship drop from a high of 300 to 65, said fi­nan­cial sec­re­tary Kim McNary.

The run took place in the evening and was kicked off with the roar­ing sound of Duke McNary’s Har­ley; no need for a horn or gun.

The over­all male win­ner was John Van Steen­bergh of Flow­ery Branch and fe­male win­ner was De­nielle Singleton of McDonough.

The over­all mas­ters win­ners were Eric John of Cov- in­g­ton and Raeanne Watkins of Tucker.

Sev­eral lo­cal rac­ers placed first in their age group.
