While many Christian congregations have activities or services scheduled for Maundy Thursday or Good Friday, Easter Saturday is often a quiet day that slips by before the celebrations on Easter Sunday.

But Taylorsville United Methodist Church is hoping to start a new Easter Saturday tradition with the “Run to the Cross” 5K race.

“The whole point is you’re running to the cross the day before Easter and looking to see it’s empty, and the next day you’re going to see that the tombstone is rolled away,” said the Rev. Sarah Dorrance, pastor of Taylorsville UMC. “It’s very specific, rain or shine, on Easter Saturday.”

Dorrance said she got the idea of the church hosting a 5K race while talking to colleagues from other parts of the country. Read more here:
