NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee State Parks is organizing a virtual 5K race this month that will coincide with World Bee Day and benefit the Tennessee State Park Honey Project.

According to a news release from the parks, the virtual race can be run - or walked - from any location. Participants run at their own pace and time themselves.

The race takes place May 17-23. Registration is $20. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Tennessee State Park Honey Project, which helps establish honeybee hives in parks across Tennessee.

Participants will receive a bib by email. A finisher’s medal and certificate will be sent by mail.
