This is the eighth year for the Superhero 5K. Start time is 9:30 a.m. at Turley Park in Carbondale.
You can pre-register, which will get you a race pack and t-shirt. All proceeds benefit orphanages and schools in Bangladesh. This year's goal is to raise $40,000. So, you can be a real Superhero to a child in Bangladesh by participating.
