New Date: 09/19/2020

We are all in this together! 

We are deeply saddened by the recent outbreak of COVID-19 and the impact it is having on the lives and livelihood(s) of our community and nation. We have been watching the news closely and working with our title sponsor and location host, The Grove, in College Grove to determine the best course of action for our event. We have decided to postpone the event until Saturday, September 19th. For those of you who are not able to make that date or still wish to keep your distance from large crowds, we are offering a "Virtual" option, which means you can get your race swag and do the event on your own. 

Please stay safe, and we look forward to honoring the sacrifice with you soon. 

Sincerely, 

Amy Cotta --  Memories of Honor, Founder | Executive Director | Mother of SSG Zych, USMC 

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the new event date, 9/19/20 and look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience and for helping us to honor the sacrifice!

Virtual races happen all the time and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run the distance on your own, and report your results - we’ll send you instructions. Packets can be picked up during our normal "Early Packet Pickup" in September.  Early packet pickup date, time, and location will be announced as the date draws closer. 

As with so many other nonprofits, COVID-19 has made a substantial negative financial impact on Memories of Honor. This race and our other events are our primary source of funding. If you are unable to attend in person on 9/91/2020, and you don't wish to do the event virtually, you have the option to allow us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We sincerely appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.
