Next Saturday, Dec. 13 marks 49 days before Super Bowl 49 and in honor of the countdown, the Super Bowl Host Committee is holding a 4.9k fun run.

"In honor of our 49 day countdown to kick off, on December 13 we are throwing a 4.9k. We have a 49 dollar registration, we have 49 cent donation for the kids’ dash and for groups of four we have ten percent off," Mandi Wimmer, senior director of the Super Bowl Host Committee, said.

The race will take place at Rawhide Western Town & Steakhouse and will be timed.

Event proceeds will benefit the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee's Legacy Grant Program.

"In the next couple weeks we are going to be unveiling our master calendar for Super Bowl," Wimmer said.

Fun run participants will get a $5 discount to the NFL Alumni Valor & Victors 5k Run in January.

Those who participate in both will receive an Arizona Super Bowl Run Series medal.
