    This 1st Annual Be Free 5k Fun Run takes place on Saturday, November 9th. In the middle of fall with the leaves changing and the coolness in the air we think this will make for a great race.
    Most of the 5k is set on the scenic Silver Comet Trail as the backdrop to this family friendly race.  
     
    You'll start at Universal Fitness located on Wendy Bagwell Pkway in Hiram behind the Race Trac on the corner of Bill Carruth. You'll turn left on Bill Carruth and make your way to the entry point on the Silver Comet trail were you will veer off to the left. Once there proceed down to the trail and turn Right towards the tunnel and travel about a 1 1/2 miles down the Silver Comet towards the caboose. You'll head back to Universal after the turn around. The majority of the course is flat with slight incline on Bill Carruth at the start of the 5k.
     
    You'll finish the last .2 of a mile past a cheering crowd and music motivating you to cross the finish line. The event also includes a pre and post vendor expo complete with a variety of snacks water and music.
