The day will begin at 8 a.m. with a full schedule of events. The race will be immediately followed by food, entertainment, many door prizes and awards.

The race will include a new 4.5 mile trail run, as well as a beautiful stroll for those who would just like to walk the course and enjoy the scenery.

The event is sponsored by Fire & Safety Specialists and organized by Team FSS Running for a Cure. They are donating all proceeds to St. Jude Children's Hospital and are expecting a large field of runners and walkers. The course will be unique to other races in the area and will feature hills that no other area race can match.
