An impromptu marathon to honor and raise money for the 26 victims of the Newtown, Conn., shooting already has more than 250 runners committed, the event’s Facebook page shows.

Money raised through the marathon, scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. Saturday in front of the Nashville Running Company Store, 1105 Woodland Street, will go to the Sandy Hook School Support Fund, organizers said.

Runners can choose to go either 6.5, 13, 19.5 or 26 miles and are asked to donate at least $1 per mile run.
