18th ANNUAL FLAPJACK RUN
The 18th Annual Flapjack Run was held on Saturday, June 25 in downtown Jasper. At the starting line on North Main Street, over 100 runners took off down S. Main Street to Little Avenue and back again with the finish line behind the Jasper Methodist Church. Although it was hot, the runners made great time, drank lots of water and enjoyed the overall experience. Following the race, the runners and families returned to Main Street where a delicious flapjack breakfast was provided by 61 Main Restaurant.
Once the results were tabulated, Parish Lowrie, Optimist Club Flapjack Race Chair, announced the overall winners and winners by age category. Top winners received
skillets while age category winners received a spatula. A special thanks to all our sponsors including Royston LLC (Gold level), Day's Chevrolet, Parish Lowrie State Farm and Community Bank of Pickens County (Silver Level) and Bronze level sponsors: Appleton Family, Bill and Susan Gibson, Piedmont Mountainside Hospital, R & R Body Shop, The Last Catch Seafood Restaurant, Party Time Sales & Rentals, Trinity Custom Homes and Jasper Jeep Dodge Chrysler Ram.
