Memorial Day Run Saturday May 24, 2014
The start is a traditional cross country start with the entire field toeing the line. At the gun, runners cross an open field before heading out on the trail system. The trails are wide and are groomed year round. At the finish, runners leave the trail for the last open field sprint to the finish line. The 5K is one loop and the 10K is two loops.
We have added a 5K walk division which will follow the same course as the run.
We have partnered with Support The Troops to help provide care packages for our troops serving overseas. At registration, Support the Troops will have donation bins accepting your donated items. For every item you bring, we will provide a raffle ticket. At the end of the race, we will be raffleing off a bunch of SWAG, shirts and free entries to Silver Circle Sports Events. Click here for a list of suggested items.
Thank you for all the donations!
