For those training for the Fineview Step-a-Thon, the big day is almost here!

The Fineview Citizens Council has spent the past few weeks prepping the course, and the race is on!

This Saturday, the 5-mile race will ascend Fineview’s hills, street and staircases. Among the steps are the 331 steps – the equivalent of a 17-story building – of Rising Main Avenue. The course covers 12 public staircases for a total of over 1,600 steps.

Sponsored by the Fineview Citizens Council, the race aims to promote the neighborhood and attract visitors and future residents.

Proceeds of the race will go to Citizens Council and go toward neighborhood cleaning and beautification projects.

The race begins at 8:30 a.m. For more information, contact the Fineview Citizens’ Council.
