DENISON, TX -- A new 5K run had hundreds lacing up their running shoes and heading out early.

The Denison Parks and Recreation Department held its first ever Battle of Waterloo 5K Run at Waterloo Lake on Saturday morning. They had about 350 runners turn out for the event.

Because it's only about a mile and a half around the lake itself, this course took the runners further afield to make up the 3.1 miles.

"It's a loop course they go around the lake and they go down on the lower trails like near the Armory and they make pretty much a big loop around Waterloo Lake Regional Park," says city parks athletic supervisor Robert Lay.

Top prize was $100 and it was a close heat for that title. The winner was Bojan Kajtaz at 19:15, followed by Justin Shahan at 19:16. There were also winners in several different age categories..
