F/WK Chamber reveals 5K run details at FBMA

The Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen made its annual contribution to the Farragut West Knox Chamber of Commerce 5K Run Committee during its Aug. 24 meeting.

Farragut Mayor W. Edward “Eddy” Ford III presented Bettye Sisco, Chamber president, a check for $10,000.

“A part of what the donation goes to is our continuing education program,” Sisco told the Board members. “I’m happy to say the program is growing.”

Jonathan Patrick, 5K committee chairman, told FBMA members the date for the run is set for Saturday, Sept. 23.

The run begins at 8 a.m. on Watt road near the Texaco station, travels north and turns on Sedgefield Drive, runs through the subdivision to Fleenor Road and travels through the south entrance of Mayor Bob Leonard Park. The race course finishes between the lower parking lot and the lower softball field.

Patrick said subdivision roads would be closed from 7:50 to 8:45 a.m. that day.
