HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - Here's your chance to get some exercise and help a local school raise money at the same time.

Weatherly Heights Elementary School will hold its second Roadrunner 5K on Saturday, March 15. The 5K starts at 7:30 a.m. and there's something new this year -- a Shamrockin' Fun Run afterwards.

The run starts at the school, which is located at 1307 Canstatt Drive in southeast Huntsville.

Weatherly's school motto is "We Go The Extra Mile" - so why not help the Roadrunners by going 3.1 miles that morning? It's a nice course through the neighborhoods just off Weatherly Road.

The race will use Solid Rock Race Timing this year.

The registration cost is $25 for adults (12+ years) and $15 for children under 12. It's $7.50 if you just want to do the Shamrockin' Fun Run. 5K participants will have a free entry for the Fun Run.

Register here by March 13.  Learn more about this fun annual event at
