Hundreds Run in Annual Clot Trot in Richland

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.--  Tuesday was the second annual Clot Trot at Howard Amon Park in Richland. 

It may have a funny name, but it's raising awareness about a serious disorder called hemophilia.  Hemophilia is a disorder where blood doesn't clot properly.  Tuesday's Clot Trot was a 5k or 1 mile run or walk, depending what you wanted to do.

Aaron Smith started this run last year as part of his Eagle Scout Project.  He has hemophilia and says that contrary to popular belief, hemophilia affects internal bleeding more than external.  Smith has to take medicine every day, but can still do normal activities.
