WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -
Eating healthy and getting exercise go together especially well Wednesday evening in West Lafayette.
More than 140 runners came out for the monthly Farmers Market 5K, hosted by the Wabash River Runners Club. The club holds the races on the third Wednesday of every month, coinciding with the West Lafayette Farmer's Market.
Organizers say the races are a way of showing support for runners in the community.
"Running can be isolating when you are training for particular events and this gives an avenue for everyone to come together," said Mark Acher, treasurer of the Wabash River Runners Club. "It's close, convenient and coincides with the farmers market."
Wednesday's turnout was the highest the club has seen so far.
The next race will be July 17.
Registration is free for club members and $3 for non-members.
