Annual race doubles the size of a central Wisconsin town in one day

Posted:
PITTSVILLE, Wis. (WAOW) -

The Heart & Sole Road Race was held at Riverside Park in Pittsville Tuesday evening.
    
With a population of just over 800 people in Pittsville, this run-walk brings in around 800 participants of all ages each year. Runners come from around the state and even out of state.
    
This years first-place winner of the womens two-mile race said she loves coming back to compete.

"I love it because it's such a small town but at the same time all these people come out to this race," said Julie Running, from Wisconsin Rapids. "I've done it for about 15 years now and it's just such a fun atmosphere, and they have great food at the end and treats. Very fun."

This was the 32nd Heart & Sole race. Proceeds from the event help the Pittsville Fire Company.
