On March 25 the Hernando County Bar Association held their annual 5k race at the Weeki Wachee Preserve off Osowaw Blvd. They have been holding this event since 2011. Around 160 to 170 people ran in the 5k this year which was a significant increase over last year's participation with approximately 110 racers.
This event raises money for the scholarships awarded by the Hernando County Bar Association. This year the Bar is awarding four college scholarships for $1,000 to students of Hernando County interested in a law-related field (including law enforcement and paralegal studies)
