Members run in eighth annual 5k race

EDMOND—More than 50 Philadelphia Church of God members, including students and faculty from Herbert W. Armstrong College and Imperial Academy students raced on September 6 during the eighth annual Swans in Flight 5k run. Participants started from the Swans in Flight sculpture at Armstrong Auditorium and wound through a 5-kilometer campus road course that led back to the starting line. Seth Malone, who was among the several college students who participated, said, “Every year I look forward to setting myself a higher goal and pushing myself to get better.” This year’s male and female winners were Imperial Academy students and siblings Noah and Ellie with times of 19:45 and 23:07. Faculty member Dennis Leap, who runs 6 to 10 races per year, said “Generally I am running with people I don’t know. The Swans in Flight 5k gives me the opportunity to run with my Church family members. It is a great opportunity for the HWAC faculty to do something fun with the students.”
