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
Kristen Tenaglia with New Balance ran 17:43 to claim victory as the Overall Female Champion.
Overall Male CEO: Reagan Rick, Fifth Third Bank: 20:03
Overall Female CEO: Melanie Fernandez, Cross, Fernandez & Riley, LLP: 25:20
Total Teams: 690
Total Participants: 16,435

During April, Track Shack customers and IOA Corporate 5k participants were invited to "Donate & Get Fit" for a chance to win an iPad, courtesy of New Balance the official apparel and shoe sponsor of the Corporate 5k. Customers donated their old running shoes and got specially fit for new running shoes.

The iPad winner was David Montanez, Environmental Graphic Manufacturer (Sign Maker) at Florida Hospital.
"I'm a long time runner and I run to keep my cholesterol and health in good shape. I've been shopping at Track Shack so long I remember when it was down the street where the Black Sheep knitting store is now," says Montanez.

The iPad will be a wonderful new tool to take with me during my deployment to stay in touch with my wife, family and friends."
