6th Annual Rileystrong 5K Saturday, August 27th


The 6th annual Rileystrong 5K Color Run and Kids Fun Run is scheduled for Saturday, August 27th in honor of Riley Thomas, with proceeds benefitting St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Organizer Michelle Thomas shares where to line up for the race:

“We start at the Monmouth American Legion and then of course it is 3.1 miles. We have a little special spot at Riley’s grave. We go by her grave every year and in the past, we have had fire extinguishers full of purple color because that was Riley’s favorite color. That is fun and the kids love to go through that as well.”

Registration and check-in begins at 8:15. The 5K will start at 9 am followed by the Kids Run at 10:15 and awards at 10:30.
