Join the 5k run/walk for a good cause for all ages! The Columbus Memorial Day 5k benefits the Columbus VFW, providing support for those who have served for the freedom of us all. The event is a great way to show your support, all while getting the whole family out to enjoy Mill Race Park and the Columbus People Trail. Encourage your friends and family to join us on this Memorial Day weekend Saturday, and go the extra mile (pun intended) by donating directly to the Columbus VFW.

Registration will start at 7:00 a.m. and the run/walk starts at 8:00 a.m. Details on packet pickup will be sent out as we get closer.

White River Running Company is giving away 7 random gift certificates to registrants!

*Race t-shirt included with your registration.


All donations must be made out in check form and addressed to 'Veterans of Foreign Wars 1987 Post Wagner Reddick'. Please note in the memo line '2019 Columbus Memorial Day 5K' so we can keep track of how much has been raised.

The Columbus VFW is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is tax deductible. Checks can be mailed directly to the VFW post:

Veterans of Foreign Wars 1987 Post Wagner Reddick
