Sat September 19, 2020 Towson, MD US 21204

Thank you to all who participated in our event this year through either registering to run or walk or donating to the event. We are overwhelmed by the outpouring support by everyone. While registration for the event has closed, you can continue to support the charities of the race by using the "Donate" button on the webpage. We look forward to seeing everyone in person at next year's race.

You can view our race day celebration on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/JMJ5K). Please also share any photos or videos of your run or walk, any  memories of Jessica, or any other memories of how you celebrate with us. 

Lastly, please submit the results of your run or walk. Fast, slow or in-between we'd love to see how you did this year.


In memory of Jessica Meredith Jacobsen, the Knights of Columbus Council # 4011 (Father O’Neill Council) has organized the 13th Annual Jessica Meredith Jacobsen Memorial 5K Run and Fun Walk on September 19, 2020. In addition to memorializing Jessica Meredith Jacobsen, who died tragically in 2007 as a result of domestic abuse, the event also supports House of Ruth Maryland, the Immaculate Conception School Tuition Assistance Fund and Fr. O’Neill Charities. 

In order to keep everyone as safe as possible, we have decided to change this year's event to a “Virtual Race”. A Virtual Race allows participants to complete their event whenever and where ever they choose while also supporting the charities and causes of the event. Participants will be able to submit their event times to see how they compare to other participants. 

T-Shirt: A t shirt with the new Masked Knight logo is guaranteed for all participants registered by September 7, 2020. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee availability of t shirts for those registering after this date. We will offer an in person pickup of t-shirts on September 17th and September 18th at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Seminary Ave between 3:00-7:00 PM. Any extra t-shirts will be available for distribution on a a first come, first serve basis during the pickup times on Thursday and Friday noted above.

Share your photos or videos on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/JMJ5K) of your memories of Jessica, photos of you completing your run or walk or showing off your race t-shirt!.

We'd love for you to submit your results so you can see how you compare with other participants! You can also share your photos after submitting your results.
