ABOUT THE RACE: “Race to Remember” – Memorial Day
Honoring the Ultimate Sacrifice.
Our “Race to Remember” Memorial Day Race is a timed event. The purpose of this event is to come together as a community to honor all military fallen heroes, which is why the start/finish is at the Memorial Wall on Phil Arnold Way on the corner of Columbia Way in Vancouver, Washington. The Half marathon, 10K and 5K Route is an out and back course on the Columbia River trail. The first Half Mile is our Honor Mile, where we will line the pathway with the American Flags and pictures of military fallen heroes. The Honor Mile is a community walk and meant for us to slow down as a community and remember the sacrifice of our military heroes.
