Timing for the race was provided by Race Day Events based out of Knoxville, TN. The first participant to finish the race was Jacob Wade with a time of 19:33. Wow! (He also won our 2017 5K with a time of 19:59 so he beat his time!) If you are interested in the results of the race, visit the Tennessee 4-H Funnel Cake 5-K website.

The Tennessee 4-H Funnel Cake 5K had an elite sponsor, John and Chelsea Rose and three signature sponsors, United Healthcare, National 4-H Council, and the Tennessee 4-H Foundation.
