Even though people have been training for weeks, you still have time to be a part of the 34th Annual Franklin Classic. On Labor Day, September 3rd historic downtown becomes a runner’s paradise. Fleet Sports is sponsoring a 10k, 5k and 1k run/walk to meet the needs of every fitness level. The event benefits Mercy Children’s Clinic.
The goal is to raise $150,000 and the latest figure for early registrations and donations shows just over one-third of that achieved. It’s time for you to make the decision to bring the whole family out for a great cause and some fun exercise. The 1k kid’s fun walk/run will be a blast; it is always great to see the young ones excited and enjoying the race.
The day starts early with registration opening at 5:45 A.M. For the more fitness minded there is a 10k run starting at 7 A.M. The 5k walk/run is beginning at 8:30 A.M. and kids start last at 9:30 A.M. Everything will wrap up with an awards ceremony at 9:45 A.M. Registration is cheaper in advance but you can register that day if you wish.
Create a team and help Mercy raise funds, or simply show up at the event and do your own thing. The important part is helping a great cause and having fun. Top three finishers in various categories will get awards. Pets are not allowed on this course and it will take place rain or shine.
Volunteers are always welcome so contact Tracie Dycus (615) 790-0567 ext 237 for more information.
