The 5th Annual “Run Through the Springs 5K” will be held on Saturday, November 2nd beginning at 9:00 a.m. in Kingston Springs, TN . This fun run begins in L.L. Burns Park and travels down Main Street, then through a country setting and back through the quiet downtown residential neighborhood, ending again at Burns Park. There are cash prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in both the male and female category, any age. All participants will receive official race medals.
This year there are even more ways to have fun and win! You may register with some of your friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc. to enter a TEAM of runners. The winning team is the one that has 4 of its members cross the finish line first. Teams must be a minimum of 4 runners or a maximum of 12. There is a team cash prize and other awards for team members. There is also a team trophy! You can register your canine to run the race with you (on a leash). There will be a prize for the first pup to cross the finish line. And to top it off, there will be costume contests! (This will give everyone a chance to use their Halloween costume again, just 3 days after Halloween.) Or you may create your own non-Halloween costume or disguise. There will be cash prizes for Best Individual Costume and Best Team Costume. There will also be a prize for Best Canine Costume. So find something, even a hat or mask or special outfit, and enter to win.
