TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville Area Chamber of Commerce Maple Leaf Run presented by The Trak Shak will be held on Saturday, Oct. 25 at The Mall in downtown Trussville.
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.
