Despite the rainy forecast runners of all ages were out in full force.

The attire serves a dual purpose, said Kathy Swenson, Scrub Run Coordinator. “We thought everyone loves to run in scrubs and we have these beautiful scrub shirts that we hand out to our participants. So it just reminds them about really being proactive in your own healthcare.”

After the race, partakers enjoyed live Irish entertainment by Crikwater and refreshments. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
