MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - Runners across East Mississippi and West Alabama will have one final chance to run on December 11th.

The first-ever Freedom 5k Race will be Saturday starting at 8 in the morning. The money raised from registration will go towards moving a retired military plane to a site next to Meridian Regional Airport.

Not only will this be an opportunity for runners to have a good time, but it’s also a way to honor our nation’s veterans.

“We’d love to have a lot of support from the community out there, but this is a very worthwhile cause. In a way this will be an amenity for the city, it’s another attraction. And it’s certainly something that honors our veterans and full-service military personnel,” said Tim Irvine of Time2Run.

A kid’s fun run will start right after the main race begins.
