Runners of all ages gathered at San Marcos High School (SMHS) starting line Aug. 22 to take part in the 2nd annual RattleSnake Run 5K.
The race served as a fundraiser for its sponsor, the SMHS Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps program.
Anthony Williams, Lieutenant Colonel, said the race is designed to bring the community together before the beginning of a new school year.
“It’s a great community service event,” Williams said. “We get a lot of participation from the local community, families, kids and young people.”
Williams said organizers decided to open the race to all ages in an effort to encourage kids to be more active.
