COLUMBIA — The True Life Run, which was added as a new tradition at last year's True/False Film Fest, started this morning from Flat Branch Park. The 5K race involved different challenges if desired by the participants.

It was the first True Life Run for the mother and daughter team. "It's cold, but at least it's not raining," Jennifer Goyne said.
