Whether you are a competitive runner, casual jogger or just out for a short stroll- the Race to Remember has something for you!  Race to Remember is not about the speed or dexterity at which you walk or run, it is about remembering lost loved ones and encouraging a healthy, active lifestyle while supporting a worthwhile cause.

New in 2015:

The 10th annual Hospice of Marshall County Race to Remember will be our best event yet!  We will have the same chip timed, well-supported, family friendly, closed course with all new features, incentives, benefits and COLOR! Each race registrant will receive 2 complimentary packs of color to use in our color celebration before and after the race. No color powder will be thrown by race volunteers during the 5K, but you may certainly arrange for your own "color blasts" throughout the course!
