WAVERLY (KWWL) -

The 3rd annual Steeple to Steeple 5K is planned for Saturday, Nov. 8 in Waverly.

The 5K run/walk and one-mile family fun run benefits St. Paul's Lutheran School.

The 5K will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the fun run will begin at 8:45 a.m. at the Wartburg College Chapel. Both will end under St. Paul's Lutheran Church steeple.

The course includes several hills and is targeted to both strong and recreational runners and walkers. The one-mile fun run is suitable for all types, including families.

"Providing a more challenging course created by Coach Newsom and having his athletes be a part of the event is very exciting," Lisa Alexander, president of the St. Paul's Lutheran School Board, said in a news release. "All proceeds raised from the Steeple to Steeple 5K will go directly to the support of St. Paul's Lutheran School, its staff and the students, through the Our Heritage Our Future Committee."

A small awards ceremony will be held for the top three male and female finishers.
