Runners make their way onto South Schwartz Avenue on Saturday as part of the 11th annual A Fair of the Heart and Goosebump Race in Farmington.

The 11th annual A Fair of the Heart and Goosebump Race today encouraged community members to think about their heart and how to maintain its health.

The event at the San Juan Regional Heart Center in Farmington provided attendees health tips and information during a health fair, which included free screenings for blood pressure, body mass index and electrocardiogram.

A cardiologist from the center was also available to answer questions and sessions were scheduled to teach attendees about CPR.

The event included a 5K race and one-mile fun walk and run that traveled near the center and the San Juan Regional Medical Center.
