There are a lot of good reasons to run; the 2nd annual Blue Planet 5k run is one of them. This year’s run will be held at the Tassee Shelter located on the Little Tennessee Greenway Saturday, Aug. 6, beginning at 9 a.m. There will also be a one mile fun walk/run for those who do not wish to do the entire 5K. The walk will begin right after the start of the 5K.
