Maple Leaf Run set for Saturday
By Gary Lloyd
Trussville’s Maple Leaf Run will be Saturday at The Mall in downtown Trussville.
Registration is $25 in advance and $30 the day of the race for the 5K. Registration for the kids’ run will be $10. The 5K will begin at 8 a.m., and the kids’ run will begin at about 9 a.m.
The first 350 runners who register will get a free T-shirt. Participants can register online at www.active.com. Race packets can be picked up at the Trussville Area Chamber of Commerce office at 225 Parkway Drive on Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., or beginning at 6:30 a.m. the day of the race at The Mall pavilion.
Prizes will be awarded in each age group as well as overall in the 5K. The top three boys and girls will receive prizes in each of two age groups — 9 and under, and 10-14 — in the kids’ run.
A portion of the proceeds from the race will go toward the chamber’s scholarship fund and also “Turn Trussville Pink,” a community project to fund breast cancer awareness. Turn Trussville Pink representatives are creating ribbons for runners to wear during the race.
