KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL) -

If you're looking to get outdoors and into a good time, the ever-popular Fun Fest in Kingsport is well underway.

Tonight, just before 10:00, it's the event many have been waiting for, a pivotal part of the 10-day festival. The World's Fastest 8K - better known as simply: the Crazy 8's Race.

In 1996, Peter Githuka, from Kenya, set a new 8K world record at Crazy 8's, with a time of 22:03. Asmae Leghzaoui, of Morocco, broke the women's world record in 2002 in 24:28. Both records still stand. The Regional Eye Center offers a $10,000 bonus for the first man or woman to break their existing world records.

Again, that's tonight at 9:58 to be exact at Dobyn's Bennett High School.

Fun Fest continues through July 21st.
