This year we recognized our walkers as a separate category.

Our first male walker to finish was Chris Wingate at 37:08 and our first female walker to finish was Colleen Williams at 37:08.

Six individuals from VBAS finished the 3.1 mile course and were recognized for their efforts.


VBAS individuals finishing the course: Larry Frasier, Bo Kelley, Charles Smith, Tony Walker, Charles Ammons, and Betty Phillips.

Many thanks to our participants, sponsors and all of the volunteers !!!


The Tradition Continues…


Over 26 years ago, Joe and Cathy Outlaw began the Claybank 5K as a way to combine their heart for Vivian B. Adams School and Cathy’s love of running.  Since that first race thousands of dollars in much needed funding has been donated to VBAS and many Wiregrass runners have grown to love running the trail at Ed Lisenby Lake.

The tradition continues !

Saturday, October 1st, we will host the 26th Annual Claybank 5K, Walk and Fun Run !!

This year, awards will be given to walkers and we will have door prize drawings at the end of the race !

And do they ever help !!!  This year they went to work and produced another very successful “Stuff the Bus” event for VBAS.  Our empty bus came back to campus filled with much needed supplies.

Adding the money collected in buckets on “Stuff the Bus” day, along with money raised with a VBAS night at Enterprise Zaxby’s, EHS Interact presented us a check for $4500.00 !!!
