Traverse City Supports Inaugural 'Resolution Run'

Many people vow to start their New Year's Resolutions bright and early on the first day of January.

So in an effort to help those who wanted to get fit and healthy, the Traverse Health Clinic hosted the city's first ever Resolution Run.

The proceeds from today's race will benefit the Traverse Health Clinic and help pay for visits for the uninsured in the area.

People of all ages came out to run or walk the 5K course, and some even brought man's best friend along for the exercise.

Racers took off from Little Fleet at 11 am and looped around the downtown district with a police escort.

Organizers were pleased with the turnout for this being the first event - over 100 people signed up.

Two of these people area a father-son duo who say today was as much about getting in good shape as it was about friendly competition.
