Registration for this year’s AthFest half marathon is now open. The 8th Annual race will be held next month. This year’s event will feature a new course and a 5K race on Saturday. Organizers say the 5K will allow more runners to take part in the race. Jill Helme is the Executive Director of AthFest Educates.
“We realized that when you’re running a 13.1 mile distance, it’s not the kind of distance that absolutely everyone in your household is going to be comfortable running,” according to Helme.
Helm says the race has ardent supporters.
