Promoting a healthy community starts with encouraging personal wellness. As part of Livingston County’s Emergency Preparedness Day and our commitment to improve our residents’ health, we invite runners and walkers of all ages to join us for the inaugural 9-Run-Run 5K and Fitness Frolic.
The 9-Run-Run 5K will wind through the scenic streets and countryside of Howell, allowing participants to enjoy the views while strolling or racing at the rate of their choice.
The Fitness Frolic one-mile run is a quick loop around the special event grounds, perfect for kids and adults alike, whether they are just starting to resolve to be ready in their fitness goals or prefer to run shorter distances.
Improving individual wellness through regular exercise, such as running or walking, helps build a solid foundation to a constitution that is more resistant to illness. Exercise and good health might be their own reward, but everyone who participates in the 9-Run-Run 5K and Fitness Frolic also receives:
In addition, the overall first-place male and female, the overall first-place Masters male and female, and the top five finishers in each age group receive a special award!
The purpose of our county’s Public Health Emergency Preparedness Division is to help protect Livingston County residents in the event of a public health emergency. The program was implemented to help mitigate, respond quickly, and effectively recover from public health emergencies. This is done through emergency planning, engaging in ongoing training and exercise drills, and working with our emergency response partners. The program also manages our Public Health Volunteer Response Team which assists in strengthening our emergency response and preparedness efforts. For more information, visit our web site here.
