There's still a month left to sign up, and Rockford's Biggest Loser Run/Walk already has over 2,000 people signed up.
The event is designed for people of all fitness levels to reach their goals and get active, but it will also serve as a boost to the local economy. Eighteen states are represented by those who have registered so far, and they're expected to bring in tourism money to the area.
The race features 5K and 15K runs and a one-mile run/walk. To sign up, visit www.biggestloserrunwalk.com.
