Walking/jogging event begins Sept. 11

ActiveAndersonTN, Clinton Schools, the Clinton 5K, and the Anderson County Health Department are sponsoring a walking/jogging event for residents of Anderson County.

The event will be held at the Clinton Elementary School track from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. Tuesday nights from Sept. 11 through Oct. 2.

For those who do not exercise regularly, it is recommended that you consult your primary healthcare provider before starting a new exercise routine.

Participants will also be invited to enter the Oct. 20 Clinton 5K, either by walking or jogging the 5K course or to participate in the One Mile Fun Run/Walk to support Clinton and Anderson County schools.

This event is meant to be a fun, non-judgmental opportunity for all ages to encourage physical activity.

Both families and individuals of all ages are welcome. Water will be available and sponsors will bring incentives for those who participate.

Parking will be available in the Clinton Elementary parking lot behind the school.

The parking lot entrance can be accessed from Marshall Street in downtown Clinton. There is a ramp or a few stairs to get up to the level of the track from the parking lot.
