This second annual event will be a perfect way to celebrate, remember and honor all those that have served our Country.
Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Memorial Day 2022 will occur on Monday, May 30. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.
This year’s event will be taking place on the White River Trail with the start and finish in downtown Lyons, WI (located between Lake Geneva & Burlington). The White River Trail is a rails-to-trails crushed limestone path on the former SOO railway. This trail is canopied by trees and provides the perfect place to reflect on the selfless service the military provides.
This event is FREE for our Veterans, Active Duty, Reserves, Law Enforcement and their spouses. Entry for all others is only $10.00 with online sign up and $20.00 the day of the event.
Once you are done running or walking you are encouraged to stay until the final runners have finished while socializing, enjoying the food and drinks at the Ye Olde Hotel. Joe and Heather do an awesome job in supporting this event.
When signing up, please consider purchasing a flag that will line the start/finish area to honor or in memory of a military hero in your life. We would love to line the trail with flags.
There also will be an option to donate to the Kenosha Running Company's Red, White and Blue Program. This program provides free race entries to active duty, veterans, reserves, law enforcement and their spouses to run or walk all of our events throughout the year. Help us in thanking those that have served all of us.
