Rebekah Monroe, a Highway Half Executive Committee member, said the running event showcases Kokomo’s creativity with fitness, families and the community so many Kokomo residents are proud of.
“When you bring a [race] home, it’s something to be proud of that it’s right in your backyard. We’re the City of Firsts and [with this race] we’re allowing people to have the first opportunity to be on this road and the last time to be able to run on it,” Monroe said. “And people are going to be there cheering everyone on. It’s a rewarding thing.”
