Runners can try out half marathon course

— Area runners are invited to help test the reconfigured course for the second Dalton Red Carpet Half Marathon, 5K and 2K event, which is scheduled for a downtown start and finish on Oct. 15.

David Sanders, co-director of the race, asks runners to gather at 7 a.m. this Saturday in front of the Whitfield County Courthouse on King Street. Participants can run or walk any portions of the routes.

Further tweaks will be made after a survey following the exhibition run.
