VFW Memorial Run is Saturday in New Richmond
Memorial Day activities in New Richmond get started on Saturday with the third annual Veterans Memorial Run.
All runs will begin and end at New Richmond’s Community Commons (former Middle School). The 10-mile run will start at 7:45 a.m., the 5K at 8 a.m., and Kids Run at 9 a.m., with race day registration beginning at 6:30 a.m.
The 10-mile course is challenging and with numerous hills and is a good test for runners planning a marathon later in the year. The 5K course will stay in town with one modest hill.
Proceeds from the run will help support financial needs of local veterans. For more information about the event, contact Steve Peterson at (651) 402-8076 or go to www.nrrunclub.com.
