The first ever July 4 Lea County Museum (LCM) Fun Run in Lovington’s Chaparral Park was held in 2016. It was a spectacular event for young and old with 97 runners and that many volunteers, families, and friends who came to support the competitors.

The 2017 LCM Fun Run is shaping up to be even better than last year. Organizers are anticipating at least twice as many runners. Anyone under age 18 runs for free.

These photographs tell the story of what a good time was had by all.
