The Kayla O'Mara Memorial Race is held annually on the first Saturday in August at Goodrich High School. We pride ourselves on hosting a quality 5k event with fast finish times, custom memorial finisher medals and a family friendly atmosphere. For 2022 we will be the Road Runners Club of America 5k State Championship Event!
We look forward to bringing back our awards ceremony, recognizing scholarship winners and general post race vibe for 2022. No promises though, we learned not to do that in 2020.
We always want to take the time to thank you to all of our volunteers, sponsors, participants, Atlas Township and Goodrich Area Schools for allowing this race to take place each year! We are honored to be back for our 17th running on Saturday, August 6th at Goodrich High School.
Kayla was an All State Track & XC Runner at Goodrich High School, a Flint Falcon Swimmer, an artist, writer, student, friend, daughter, granddaughter and sister. She loved Jack Johnson and being a part of the GHS running program. Kayla is loved and missed daily.
This annual race not only keeps Kayla's memory alive, but also raises funds for a scholarship given in her memory. The scholarship is for students who exemplify qualities important to Kayla, such as academic excellence, teamwork, leadership. Scholarship winners are recognized at the race each year.
