Pride and confidence was the theme at last night's IOA Corporate 5k as 16,400 runners and walkers took over downtown Orlando to celebrate healthy living with co-workers, friends and family.
Central Florida's premiere night-time corporate run is among the largest in Florida and among the first races since the tragic incident that occurred during Monday's Boston marathon.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer's participation was a visible sign of his confidence that downtown Orlando is a safe place to be and that we should celebrate our quality of life with the people we live and work with.

Evan Dehart, of WCCI ran a strong race to win as the Overall Men's Champion with a time of: 15:46
