This year will mark the 37th year the Highland Lions Club has hosted a biathlon and run on Memorial Day. The yearly race, which starts at 8 a.m. at Lindendale Park, usually draws about 500 participants.
There are both team and individual biathlon events. Or, you can participate in a five-mile run or a 2K “Fun Run.” There are various race categories for awards in various age groups. There are also attendance prizes, and the first 400 people to register receive a T-shirt.
As is tradition, there will be post-race activities and refreshments, including the Lions brats and pork sandwiches.
For more information or to register, go to www.highlandbiathlon.org.
