Work up an appetite before eating all of that barbecue on this Memorial Day by running (or walking) in the 3rd Annual Evansville Memorial Day Run. Its a 5k/10k Run/Walk sponsored by Indiana Rolling Thunder Chapter 6 beginning at Garvin Park in honor of those that have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

Late registration will begin at 7am on Monday, followed by a salute to the Veterans that will be participating. Yuengling Lager will also be handed out at the finish line to toast those that have fallen (in battle not in the race)!

Here is the schedule of events for Monday:

Monday 5/28/18
7am – Day of PACKET PICK UP for those out of town or with scheduling conflicts.
8am – National Anthem led by Patriotic Soul with 100 foot American Flag.
