ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- Holcomb Bridge Middle School's Holcomb Bridge Hustle 5K will be back for the third year next month.

The event has again partnered with the Kyle Pease Foundation to make the race accessible to athletes with disabilities. Competitors in racing wheelchairs are welcome to participate; several volunteers will be available to push them all the way to the finish line.

"The Hustle 5K continues to exceed my expectations," Holcomb Bridge Middle principal Joy Schroerlucke said in a statement. "I'm very excited to see the turnout we will have at our third annual event this year."

Race co-chair Mike Buteau said partnering with the Kyle Pease Foundation made the 5K even more special.

"It was a fun and rewarding experience for all" of the 400 runners who participated in the 2012 event, Buteau said.

The Holcomb Bridge Hustle will be held Saturday, Nov. 9 at 8 a.m. Registration is $30 for adults and $20 for students.
