LONGVIEW,TX (KLTV)- Crowds covered more than a few Longview streets this morning, as hundreds of runners went the distance for a deserving group. The first annual Longview 5-k and half-marathon run, sponsored by Longview Regional hospital kicked off this morning at Lobo stadium. Runners of all levels took off to raise money for Longview Ambucs. Organizers say the event was conceived to promote a morning's worth of good exercise, for a good cause. More than 570 runners, including quite a few children, took part in today's run.
