The annual Nashville Predators Fangtastic 5K was held Saturday morning.

The race started at Bridgestone Arena, taking participants through a winding route around downtown Nashville.

The entry fee included a special Nashville Predators 5K t-shirt for early registers and admission to a post-race party at Honky Tonk Central.

The day featured a free 1K Kids Fun Run at 9:30 a.m., the 5K at 10 a.m. and a post-race party at Honky Tonk Central.

A portion of the proceeds for each entry goes back to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt.

“I think people really enjoy giving back to the children's hospital its fun for our players, they see it as a good activity maybe provide a little joy some excitement for kids in need,” Executive VP Chris Parker told Nashville's News 2.

Last year through a series of events the Predators donated around $150,000 to the children's hospital.
