Runners lined up on this cool Saturday morning at McKinney Street at Smith Street near Hermann Park. Race participants did the four-mile run for health, for fun and also to benefit Lone Star Veterans Association.
Annie Hunnell, chair of the military committee, says the group is thrilled with the record-setting turnout.
"Truly helps our active military transition to civilian life," Hunnell says. "We've created an amazing veteran community. Truly this has been a group effort."
The Lone Star Veterans Association is the largest in Texas with just over 6,000 members.
