More than 115 people showed up at Venable Elementary School Saturday morning for a Fun Run. The school's Physical Education Department partnered with Charlottesville Parks and Recreation to host the event.
The race was just two miles, but runners had to stop eight different times for special challenges.
“They had a tire run, we had a crab walk carry where they carried a sand bag, held a plank and go down a ladder, jumping jacks, squats they did a little bit of everything,” said organizer Kylie Cempre.
There were snacks, a raffle, and games after the Fun Run. Charlottesville Parks and Recreation hosted the event as a fundraiser for the City Schoolyard Garden.
