About This Activity

 Free to Run race was started 4 years ago in memory of Debra Algood, a church member who died suddenly. She was very active in women's and childrens ministries, and in her memory we race for different organizations in need.  This year  Free to Run races will benefit the Back Packs for Friday and FAME (Fellowship of Associates of Medical Evangelism).

The small town has a very welcoming community with many activites go on in the the town the day of the event. Run in the morning, and stay around the for Cool Cars / Hot Chili in the afternoon. The race features a very flat race course with great race support throught the race. This is a small race where southern hospitality rules. Come join us for a fun morning run, support great organizations, and hang around for fun in the communty afterwards. We hope to see you there.
