If you're looking to start your own 5K season sooner, you won't have long to wait.

Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital is holding its seventh annual Wellness 5K Run and Walk on Saturday.

The event promises to be the largest yet, with almost 200 people pre-registered.

Organizers said the annual event has made an impact on health in the community.

"I think really it has helped us with our lifestyle choices. I know there are people that started out seven years ago that are still running today. And I'm excited about that," said Julia Spelsberg, Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital.

The Weston 5K will run through downtown Weston Saturday at 10 a.m.
