COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Nearly 400 people participated in the 10th and final Run Across Georgia event.

It was an all day and night event, 260 miles from Savannah to Columbus. Several solo runners and bicyclists finished the tall task. All the relay teams crossed the finish line Sunday afternoon. Team News Flash, which included several News Leader 9 employees, was part of those teams.

So far, Run Across Georgia participants have raised nearly $180,000 to be split between two local nonprofits, House of Heroes Chattahoochee Valley Chapter and Mercy Med of Columbus.
