Every year in July, you are asked to lace up your running shoes and get ready to run in the heat for an amazing cause, The Bridge Advocacy Center.  The Hot Blooded Run returns.

The Hot Blooded Run returns to Amarillo on July 28th. Karen Roberts with Get Fit, sponsors this run as well as the Cold As Ice run in the winter, both benefit The Bridge Advocacy Center.

If you are a runner and want to take part you have options. You can run a 10K or a 5K. If you feel that you can't do a long run you can still take part in their 1 mile walk/run.

Entry fee into any of the races is $25 and you have to register in advance for the run. If you are one of the first 250 to register you will receive a Hot Blooded Run t-shirt.  You must register in advance, they will not have the option to register the day of the race.

You can register at Get Fit, 1911 S. Georgia or

Awards will be given in the timed events.  This year they will be naming a 2018 race series winner.  Those male and female finishers in the 10K and 5K with the fastest combined time for both races (Cold As Ice and Hot Blooded) will win a new pair of shoes from Get Fit.
