BRISTOL, CT (WFSB) -

Hundreds came out to Bristol on Sunday morning for an event that gave military families a big ‘thank you.’

The third annual Bristol Half Marathon and Relay was held Sunday morning and  benefits Fisher House Connecticut and is sponsored by The Creed Law Firm and Planet Fitness.

The Fisher House is like a military version of the Ronald McDonald House.

Homes on the campuses of major military and VA hospitals where soldiers or their families can stay free of charge while treatment is given at the medical center.

Sunday’s race course went through Clark Avenue, Terryville Road, and then came back to Clark Avenue at the HealthTrax Fitness and Wellness Center.
