On Saturday the McLean Mad Hatter 5K race kicked off at 8 a.m. The race was open to runners of all ages and started at McLean Middle School. The race route took participants through TCU and Westcliff neighborhoods and ended back at McLean Middle School.

The McLean Mad Hatter 5k is named such because participants are encouraged to wear their craziest hats for the race. Participants showed spirit by sporting many different crazy and interesting hats.

Racers and attendees enjoyed a DJ, food, drinks, and gift card drawings for local businesses after the run.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the event organizers, McLean Middle School Parent Teacher Association.
