Brooke Hill was a young, vibrant, civic minded wife and mother of two beautiful girls. She fought a courageous battle with ovarian cancer. Prior to her passing she asked her family and friends to organize events to bring awareness and to raise funds for ovarian cancer research. Your participation in this event helps the cause and also keeps Brooke’s spirit alive. Thank you.

Shoe Chip timing provided by the River City Runners. Timing chip will be given out on race morning at the packet pickup area. Your bib must be worn on the lower front of your shirt. If you are running both races, you must change your chip after the 5K to the 1 mile chip. If you run without a chip you will not be included in the results or be eligible for awards. We ask that you make every effort to pre-register (post marked by 8/1, online by 10 pm 8/3) as this makes race day morning run more smoothly and the events to start on time.
There will be a pre-registration/ packet pick up on Friday 8/3 from 5:30-7pm at the Carnegie in Decatur, you may also register for the races at that time. Race day registration runs from 6:00-6:45am for the 5K, and until 7:45am for the 1 mile.
