Join us for the 7th Annual Phil Royal Legacy Foundation "Royal Run 5K"  on Saturday, September 16, 2023.  Proceeds of the race go to benefit The Phil Royal Legacy Foundation.   Previously the Beat the Sheriff 5k, started by Sheriff Jeff Dawsy in 1997. Following the unfortunate passing of Sheriff Candidate Phil Royal, Sheriff Dawsey agreed to pass the torch to the Legacy Foundation to insure this event would continue.

In the 5K if your time is faster than 26:36 you will receive a “Faster than Phil” certificate along with a special Phil Royal Legacy gift!

Returning this year will be the Legacy Team Challenge where we will recognize the team, group, club, or organization with the most participants.
