Firecracker 5K

Two Garver employees participated in the Easy Runner Firecracker Fast 5K Race in Little Rock, Arkansas over the Fourth of July weekend. Bill Ruck finished in 23:06 and ran a 7:27-minute mile. He finished ninth in his age group. Derrick Hendrix crossed the line in 19:06, averaging a 6:10-minute mile. He placed seventh in his age group.

A number of Garver friends and clients also came out in support. Jon Honeywell of Little Rock Public Works (pictured on right with Bill Ruck) and Mike Maulden of Entergy, Little Rock Port Authority Board Chairman, both ran outstanding times. Though sidelined by injury this year, James Firestone, Little Rock Port Authority Director of Operations, came with his family to support his daughter and the Garver runners.

The Firecracker 5K has been held annually since 1976 and attracts runners throughout the region. This year nearly 1,000 participants ran in the event.
