The race will include a new 4-5 mile trail run and a stroll for those who would just like to walk the course and enjoy the scenery. Event organizers (Team FSS) are donating all proceeds to St. Jude Children’s Hospital and are expecting a large field of runners and walkers for the inaugural event. The event is being sponsored by Fire & Safety Specialists and organized by Team FSS St. Jude.
