Organizers of the event, which benefits the school district, said they anticipate the largest turnout yet. Over the past two years, the run has raised over $25,000 for the Springfield Education Foundation.
There will also be a Fun Run for children under the age of 9 which will also be held at JDHS, located at 139 Mountain Avenue in Springfield. The cost of the Fun Run is $10.
