One of the more unique runs in the area is returning to the Swanton area this year. The I Believe I can Fly 5K/1K is slated for April 9 on the runway of Toledo Express Airport.
The run benefits veterans with brain injury and PTSD through the programs of The Arms Forces nonprofit, including their service dog program, The Paws Forces.
There is also a special start to the race planned, with ear plugs provided.
The entry fee is $30 through March 25. After that, the cost is $35. The cost for active duty military is $20, while Purple Heart recipients are free. The cost to enter the kids 1K is $10.
There is online registration at everalracemgt.enmotive.com. Same day registration begins at 7:30 a.m. with an 8:45 a.m. start for the kids run and 9 a.m. start for the 5K.
