The event will include a one-mile family walk/run featuring a superhero gauntlet, a 5K road race, and a 5K relay race featuring four-person teams from our area’s helping professionals (e.g., teachers, doctors, nurses, as well as fire, EMT, and police department personnel). The event will include street vendors, a chicken BBQ sponsored by the Russell Fire Department, and various activities sponsored by the Russell Methodist Church.
