On your mark, get set, go -- well not just yet. In a few weeks runners will be taking part in this year's Crazy 8's Road Race and Thursday organizers laid out some of this year's plans.
Organizers tell us this year runners can sign up with their cell phones. A new app will send an instant text to runners as soon as they cross the finish line.
Awards were also given during the announcement to police, firefighters, and public workers as a "Thank you" for all their help during Kingsport FunFest activities.
This year's Crazy 8's 8K takes place July 13. For more information you can click here.
