Start a new Memorial Day weekend tradition or continue an existing one by walking or running the Modesto Memorial Classic, May 23, at Tuolumne Regional Park in Modesto.
The event honors veterans who have served this country. Proceeds in part go to the Modesto Vet Center, which helps returning combat veterans rejoin society.
The Modesto Memorial Classic is family friendly with 1-mile and 5K walk/runs as well as a FREE kids’ fun run. (Baby strollers are welcome, but no dogs except for service animals.)
Each paid registrant receives a technical race shirt and a pancake breakfast cooked by Vet Center volunteers.
Medals given to the top three male and female finishers in 10-year age groups in the mile.
In the 5K, medals will be awarded to the top three male and female finishers in 5-year age groups. The 5K also features cash prizes to the top open and masters finishers and a cash bonus for the first male and female to break the course records.
Medals to all finishers’ in the kids fun run.
