Update April 28: The Digital Corridor has added their own video of the race -- it's shown just below.

Update: The results are in. Go check 'em out.

First reporting:

On Thursday afternoon several hundred of the region's tech savvy (and many others) converged at Charleston's Maritime Center for the third-annual iFive:K.

Yes, these folks that were more likely to be known for sitting behind a monitor and keyboard were about to go for a 5K run.

But in all fairness, the casual bystander wouldn't have thought anything odd about the runners/walkers/shufflers, that is if we weren't running down East Bay Street at 7 p.m. and blocking traffic. -- Yep, this race is pitched as downtown Charleston's only afternoon run and runs a scenic route from the S.C. Aquarium down to The Battery and back up again. 

Then the whole affair is topped off with pizza and beer at the end.

We're still waiting for the official times to be posted, but once they go up we'll update here with the link.

But, go on, watch the video above and get a feel for the event. 

Editor's note: Included in that bunch of geeky runners were two of us from TheDigitel (me and business developer Austin Dandridge) -- but in all fairness, Austin isn't that geeky, he'd probably even pass as one of your normal people. Austin came in with a time around the 22-minute mark and I the 32-minute mark (which I think isn't half bad for a guy who hasn't been running since 2004).
