Join us for the Clovis Memorial Run to be held May 23, 2020. The event is to honor and support our senior citizens, veterans and active military on Memorial Weekend. We hope you will join us to Honor our Legacy of the senior citizens and veterans in our community. The event is for all athletic abilities and ages and will be held rain or shine.
The event includes a timed 5K (3.1 miles) run or walk, a non-timed 2-mile walk, a non-timed 1/2 mile kid’s run, and a non-timed 1/2 mile Senior Walk & Roll. Your registration includes a t-shirt, pancake breakfast ticket, goodie bag, one raffle ticket (additional tickets available for $1.00) and a participant ribbon.
The 5K or 2-mile registration is $35 until May 10. The Kid’s Run or Senior Walk and Roll is $25 until May 10. Veterans and active military may participate for free but must register by May 10 in order to get their shirt and other goodies. Veterans and active military who register after May 11 are $10.
Early bird registration is available through May 10. No mail-in registrations after May 17 – in person at the Senior Center or on-line only. From May 11-23 the cost per runner increases $5.00 per person for each event listed above except for active military and veterans which changes from free to $10.
Shirt sizes and quantities are not guaranteed for registrations after May 10, 2020. Online registration is available until May 20.
Proceeds from the event go to the Clovis Senior Activity Center to help improve our programs. In conjunction with the races, a resource fair will be held in the parking lot adjacent to the Senior Center. Vendors and information for seniors, veterans and their families will be available. A pancake breakfast will be served inside the Clovis Senior Center. Each participant will receive a breakfast ticket and additional tickets for family and friends can be purchased for $5.00 each. At this year’s race, there will be a Kids Zone that will be located at Clovis Veterans Memorial Square. The park is located just south and adjacent to the Clovis Senior Activity Center. The Kids Zone will offer various bounce houses for kids to enjoy during the time of our event.
