Runners Sprint Into Spring For 4th Annual Rabbit Race 5K

Posted: Updated:

More than 500 runners sprinted into Spring Saturday morning in the 4th Annual 5K Rabbit Race. 

Dressed in tutus and bunny ears, these runners are made the traditional run which is held right before Easter.

It helps raise money for the Junior League of Panama City's programs such as "Girls on the Run," and the Child Service Center, which has provided clothing for 1,300 children.

 "It's definitely a big fundraiser for us, especially when you account for the sponsor dollars we have," said Race Director Heather Kretzer.  "It really helps to put those programs into place because without the people's support and the race and the sponsors, we wouldn't be able to do the things we were able to do for the community."

There was also a half mile bunny hop for the younger runners.
