Description

Join us for our annual Atlanta Memorial Day 5K Classic to pay homage to our men and women of the United States Armed Forces who have sacrificed their lives for our great nation. The Red White And Blue Mile is to pay tribute to the fallen heroes that gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country. When you are running the 5K and you get to that final mile, 2.1 mile mark on the course, think of all the soldiers that lost their lives in battle.  8 x 10 Photos can be placed along the final mile of a friend or family member that you are running in memory of, we will place the photo between mile 2 and 3, please email victoria@marathonmajic.com for more details.

This race originated in Florida and is now celebrating their 34th year running in Weston, Florida! It is one of the most anticipated events in the United States!
