Ashley Hunter Arnold was the lone member of the Collective in action this past weekend, as she toed the line for the China Grove 5k. This historically fast race has been an ARC favorite for years. It features a flat out-and-back course and often has a deep and competitive field. A 9:00 pm start helps mitigate the summer heat, but it’s usually still quite warm and humid.
From the start, Ashley found herself running solo. Regardless, she took advantage of the quick course to run a very solid 17:51 for first female honors and sixth place overall. Keep an eye out for more fast times from Ashley and the rest of the Asheville Running Collective this summer.
