The Scott Burgess Memorial 5k was established in 2013 to honor our own hero, SSG Scott Burgess. Scott was killed in Afghanistan in 2011 while serving in the Army's 1st Battalion, 84th Field Artillery Regiment, 170th Infantry Brigade Combat Team. All of the proceeds go to a scholarship program benefiting the youth of Robertson County where Scott was raised. The race is on June 1st, to begin with a memorial speech at 6:45 am and the playing of Taps and our National Anthem. The race starts at 7:00 am and a kids 1 mile race will immediately follow at approximately 8:00 am. The results and awards will be given out right after the kids run. 

Packet pick up will be held at the City Park - Franklin on Friday night before from 5-9p and also pre-race beginning at 6:00 am. The race starts and finishes in City Park - Franklin, Tx. and a full day of family fun with festival games and live music will give the family plenty of things to do so plan to stay for all of the festivities!

***NOTICE*** All registrations received after May 19th will not be guaranteed a shirt. We will order extra shirts in an attempt to fulfill all of the racers but there is a chance that we have more late registrations than the number of shirts available. If you are a late registration you are encouraged to arrive at the packet pick up as early as possible to claim your shirt.
