Walk or Run, Liberty County has you covered

It’s almost that time of year when it gets a little cooler and the air becomes a little crisper. Yes, we know the official first day of Fall was September 21, but this is South Georgia, we still have a few weeks of downright hot left! What better time to get outside and enjoy the nice weather though than fall? October is known as prime months for runners, which by the way is our favorite time of year. This year’s October calendar is full of 5ks and fun runs/walks all over Liberty County. So put your running shoes on and let’s get moving!
