The Mom McGrail Memorial Scholarship 5K Walk - Run

The 2024 5K is Virtual & In Person
Online Registration will be available July 1, 2024.

Why:       The annual 5K Walk - Run was established by friends and family of Catherine "Kathleen"                                          McGrail to bring people and a community together for a good time in her memory all while
                  raising money for academic scholarship(s).

When:   The date was chosen in early August every year so that it would correspond with Mrs. McGrail's                                birthday on August 7th.  It will always be held on the 1st Saturday of August every year. The                                      registration form will go live on Monday, July 1st and stay up one week after the in person                   walk ~ run Saturday, August 10, 2024. The in person 5K walk ~ run will take place on Saturday,                      August 3, 2024 @ 9:30am.  Please post your virtual 5K photos to the Mom McGrail Facebook                          page and use the hashtag #mommcgrail5k2024.  

Where:  Historically the 5K has had a few different routes over the years before settling on the current                                    route that starts and finishes at the Veterans Memorial Park.

How to get involved:
