LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Thousands came to Louisville Slugger Field for the tenth annual Anthem 5K Run/Walk on Saturday.
President Deb Moessner of Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kentucky said around 9,000 runners and walkers show up to take part in the race which started at 8:00 AM.
The event is the first in the series known as the Louisville Triple Crown of Racing. All events benefit the Crusade For Children.
Whatever the reason, runners and walkers said they were glad to participate for healthy habits and charitable events.
"Running and being physically fit is very, very important. I also like being involved in events like this for children and for our community," said Kim Ennis, an avid runner and participant.
"We just wanted to do something fun and exciting. Just kind of represent ourselves and our personality, fun and exciting and we love having a good time," said Mindi Kindle, a runner who accompanied her two other friends in their frilly tutus.
Sherri Bean, Ennis and Kindle said they had an early morning wake up call for the event since they drove from Fort Knox.
Some did more than show off their running skills at the event.
"This year we decided to do it again since it has been a couple of years and our daughters actually came with us and we sang the national anthem,"said Erek Gillespie. "We have got multiple reasons to be running today."
The Louisville Triple Crown race 2013 race series included the March 9 Anthem 5K Fitness Classic, but two other events follow. The Rodes City Run 10K will take place on Saturday, March 23 and the Papa John's 10 Miler will take place on Saturday, April 6.
