Scranton Mayor Chris Doherty came up with the idea of a monthly run.
Every third Thursday of each month the community is welcome to come down and run or walk a designated course for free.
Tonight's course was 2 miles long but that will not be the case every month.
The location changes along with the length each month.
The hope is that by the summer folks will be able to run a greater distance.
February's course will start at Zaleski's Clubhouse Cafe on Beech Street in South Scranton. Registration is at 5 and the race starts at 6.
