NEED A REASON TO RUN IN THIS EVENT? HOW ABOUT THREE?!
1. Anyone can benefit. Running requires little equipment and can be done alone or with friends/family. Of course, be sure your doctor agrees that you are healthy enough to start a running program - or any exercise program for that matter.
2. It’s the Saturday after Thanksgiving, so it’s the perfect solution for shedding those added Turkey Day pounds. Even if you aren’t a regular runner, any amount of participation will help promote health throughout the holiday season by offering a jumpstart to your exercise routine.
3. The whole family can participate thanks to choices of a one-mile fun run, a 5K or a half marathon, offering a distance suitable for little ones to teenagers to adults.
If that’s not enough, keep in mind that you’ll be enjoying the scenic paved trails that flow through Gulf State Park in the cities of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.
