This week's guests:

Susan Rodriguez, NBCT, Education Specialist for Navajo County chats with Birdman about the High Mountain Half Marathon that takes place Saturday, August 5th at the Blue Ridge School District Campus.

The course is 13.1 miles. You do not have to be a runner to participate. There is a section for walkers, who will start earlier. You can also do the 'Relay' portion with a partner if you want to split the course in half. There is a 5k and a 'Fun Run' for the kids too! The finish line is the same point for all participants.

The High Mountain Half Marathon supports local youth sports, arts, and clubs. They have a goal of $25,000 for this year and need your help to get the last $5,000! Consider becoming a sponsor or runner. More information can be found on the website at: . We encourage our entire community to come out and support the runners and walkers on Saturday August 5th along the race route. Signs, music, and just clapping are GREATLY appreciated by the runners. Spectators are also welcome to come and enjoy the festivities at the finish line in the Fun Zone, an festival of activities, live music, and food.
