LAWTON,OK (KSWO)-Runners taking part in the Spirit of Survival race Sunday geared up for the competition on Saturday at the Hilton Garden Inn.

Athletes will compete in various competitions such as the 5k race, quarter and half marathon, kids marathon and spirit walk.


Staff member Sandy Foster said they expect over three thousand runners to show up.


She wishes all competitors good luck and to remember the reason behind the race.
