LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Thousands of people took advantage of gorgeous weather and participated in the Subway Fresh Fit Hike, Bike and Paddle event on Louisville's waterfront on Monday.

The twice annual event -- held every Memorial and Labor Day -- was created to get people out and moving. The free event features boating, running, and cycling, all beginning at Waterfront Park.

Booths at the event included fitness demonstrations with yoga, tai chi, zumba and pickleball.

Participants could take their pick from a 5K hike, 10-mile bike ride or a paddle on the Ohio River.

This event is not a race and was open to participants of all levels.

During today's event, Mayor Greg Fischer took time to respect what Labor Day is all about.

"We owe our nation's prosperity and its promise to the hard work to the countless men and women like you all here today who built our economy from the ground up and handcrafted the American dream for future generations," Fischer said.
