Area runners got an early start to their day to benefit a good cause.
More than 250 runners registered to take part in a race in downtown Meridian on Saturday morning to benefit the local Boys and Girls Club. Runners from "Divas on the Run," a local running group, even took part in the race. The group trains for ten weeks out of the year.
Central United Methodist Church on 23rd Avenue sponsored the Mission: Possible race to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of East Mississippi.
