About This Activity

In honor of Brian Marshall, the Eden Prairie wrestling program is hosting its first ever 5K run/walk and a kids 1K run.

Brian Marshall was an important part of the wrestling program, as he was a youth coach that encouraged and empowered the young wrestlers in the wrestling room.  Brian had a love and passion for the sport of wrestling and that was seen in the wrestling room, as well as in the kids who were fortunate enough to have him as a wrestling coach.  However, in the summer of 2013, Brian was diagnosed with stage four Melanoma, which sadly claimed his life in December 2013.  Therefore, the wrestling club created this event to honor Brian, and the proceeds from the race will support the Eden Prairie wrestling program that Brian is still a member of.  Through the proceeds, the wrestling program can grow and share Brian’s passion and love of wrestling with the youth and families through scholarships and wrestling events.  Brian Marshall may not be physically in the wrestling room, but we all know his heart and passion still is.
