The event also included a one-mile family run. The annual race takes runners through several courses in downtown. Each block, runners were greeted by a cheering cross guard.
The event was sponsored by the city of Abilene, Mayor's Council, and Abilene Runner's Club.
All of the proceeds from the event will go to the Mayor's Council on Physical Fitness.
