The 2016 Autumn Chase Fun Run, sponsored by Huntsville Hospital and the Huntsville Track Club, is set for Thursday, Sept. 22, at John Hunt Park. Now in its 36th year, the Fun Run is a community outreach to foster interest in physical activity and wellness among our youth.
The free, one-mile race is open to any child from preschool through eighth grade. Everyone who finishes gets a collectible Fun Run T-shirt and a participation ribbon. First-, second- and third-place finishers in each age category also win a medal. For runners in fourth through eighth grades, the first boy and girl to cross the finish line receive a month of free training at D1 Sports Training.
Register for the race online at huntsvillehospital.org/funrun, or register in person on race day at the Jaycee’s Building, 2180 Airport Road. Races start at 4 p.m. with the youngest children running first.
