HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - More than 50 teams of runners are scheduled to participate in a challenging fitness event in Hattiesburg Saturday, which will raise funds for a newly-formed veterans support group.
They will compete int the inaugural Battle Run and Fitness Festival at Anatomies Family Fitness Center.
It is a 5K event that features many obstacles that would be found on a military fitness course.
It also includes fitness activities for children and group fitness classes.
Funds raised during the event will go to Chaplain's Well, which is an organization formed earlier this year to support men and women in the National Guard with financial and holistic aid in times of need.
An exhibition race featuring members of the National Guard, Southern Miss cheerleaders and other groups took place Wednesday.
