Railroad 5K, September 3, 1988

Novice Race Directors Joe Dexter and Jim McGone put together this 5K at the head of the old Tallahassee-St. Marks Railroad which had been converted to the St. Marks Trail.  Ever the teacher, Joe included the history of the railroad on the back of each race flier.  The flier and “railroad gloves,” printed by T-formation, depicted a steam powered engine and a coal or wood car attached, with a single runner racing beside and ahead of the train.  The top male and female received trophies and all participants received railroad gloves instead of t-shirts.  There was water, fruit and random drawings for Joe’s usual odd prizes.  The entry fee was $6.00, with the proceeds going to benefit the Trail.  Joe and Jim got together with Joe Beckham of the St. Marks Trail Association and used the proceeds to pay for the first water fountain, located in Woodville, on the 16 mile Trail.
