There is still time to register for Saturday’s Susco 8K: Running with Tim.
The race is an annual event that honors Tim Susco, a 1999 South Lakes High School graduate who died of a bran aneurysm in 2007.
The race benefits both brain aneurysm and organ donor awareness. Susco was an organ donor, and his parents have, over the years, met several recipients of Tim’s otherwise-healthy organs.
The race begins at South Lakes High School at 8:30 a.m. There is also a 2K fun run/walk that starts at 8:35 a.m.
Online registration is closed, but you can register at packet pickup at SLHS ($35) Friday night or at the race ($40) Saturday morning starting at 7 a.m.
The course will go through streets near SLHS. Roads will not be completely blocked, but certain lanes will be for runners only. So plan ahead and use caution.
Affected streets include Ridge Heights Road, South Lakes Drive, Twin Branches Road, Glade Drive and Soapstone Drive.
See the full course on the race website.
