Run for the Hills to benefit Special Olympics

Farmington's Run for the Hills is Saturday, Aug. 21, and there's still time to register. What's more, there's a new reduced price for kids 12 and under.

The event benefits Special Olympics Oakland County, and there's a 1 mile fun run/walk, a 5k run and a 10k run. Fees are $30 for the 5k and 10k, and $15 for the 1 mile, but kids 12 and under can participate in any of the events for just $10. That $10 entitles them to enter the race, wear a race number and earn a medal. Their times will not be recorded and they won't get t-shirts, but it's a great deal to get kids out and exercising.

The 10k run starts at 8 a.m., the 1 mile at 8:05 a.m., and the 5k at 9 a.m. Entertainment and refreshments will be provided to the runners, and there will be awards for the top 3 male and female in each age group.

Register at Starbucks on Grand River in downtown Farmington or at the race, which starts in Shiawassee Park.
