The Smithville Thunder travel baseball team is pleased to announce the inaugural running of the Liberty Mule Thunder Run, a 5K road/trail race and 1-mile fun run to be held on November 10 at Salem Baptist Church in Historic downtown Liberty.
The race director and coach Danny Jenkins said the race will get underway at 8:00 a.m. with the fun run taking place first, followed by the 5K. The fun run course will be out and back on Main Street toward downtown while the 5K course will head west out Highway 70 and loop around behind DeKalb West School.
"The 5K route is really unique in that it has some elements of both road and trail running," Coach Jenkins said, "and I would rate it as a very easy and accommodating course for beginners and inexperienced runners. And, as its our first time staging this event, it is also a good place for intermediate runners to get that elusive age-group ribbon," said Jenkins.
Entry forms can be obtained from several public locations in the area, on line at smithvillethunder.org or by contacting Coach Jenkins at 615-464-7540.
