Good Turnout Expected for Sneakers & Spurs Run

Michelle Mandeville is expecting a good turnout for this year's Sneakers & Spurs 5K Run.

The event starts at 8 a.m. Friday, and Mandeville said there are usually 500 to 600 people in the event.

She said registration is from 7 to 7:45 Friday morning at the Sport Stop. People who have pre-registered can pick up their tee shirts and race numbers at Foot of the Big Horns. Mandeville said pre-registration started in February.

Mandeville, who's manager of the Sport Stop, said she isn't sure how long the Sneakers & Spurs Run has been part of Friday's events, but it's been at least 26 years. She said the event was started by another store in town that's no longer in business, and the Sport Stop took over when that first business closed.
