The weather in East Texas is starting to warm up just on time for this Saturday's Longview Half Marathon and 5K. The race is in its third year and every time it comes around, it gets more popular. In 2011, there were 500 runners. In 2012, there were 600 and there's expected to be more this year.
The Longview Run Club and Good Shepard Medical Center have paired up to put on this event. The race starts at Lobo Stadium at 7:30AM. If you need a reason to run, it's simple... Proceeds go to the Longview AMBUCS which provides mobility and independence for the disabled.
Registration starts at 6AM on Saturday morning at Lobo Stadium.
