      Darton students run their butts off

      Darton State hosts 5K run with the winner pictured here.

      Darton College held their annual, "Smokin' Butts 5K," this morning giving students, and citizens the chance to stretch their legs and bag some scholarships.

      The high energy event had the Darton cheerleading team encouraging participants as they rounded the last leg of the course, and of course runners had some great BBQ waiting for them at the finish line.

      Runners had the option of taking on the 1-mile fun run, or legging out a 5K race.

      Officials say the event was a huge success and their looking forward to doing it again in 2014.
