Join us for the 2nd Annual Officer Daniel Ellis Memorial 5K Run/Walk Presented by Baptist Health Richmond. The race will take place on Saturday, April 22, 2017 at 8:30am at Richmond Centre Mall in Richmond, KY.
Our packet pickup will be held on Thursday, 4/20/17 from 3pm-7pm at Surge Promotions (307 Jason Dr #4, Richmond, KY 40475). You may pickup packets for family members and friends. No credentials required. There will also be race day packet pickup at Richmond Centre Mall (Near Buffalo Wild Wings & Panera Bread) from 7:00-8:30am.
We will have commemorative race T-shirts, chip timing, overall & age group awards, DJ and post race food. This will be a way for the community to celebrate the life and continued legacy of Officer Daniel Ellis.
We are offering a Student Rate for any students 18 years old or younger who run/walk in the 5K in Richmond. This rate does not apply for our "Virtual Runner/Walker" category.
We've also created a 5 (or more) Person Team Competition. If you have a team of 5 or more we'll add the top 5 race times for the 5K of your team to compete against other team. Also the team with the largest number of members will win a prize, so get your team together!
For those living outside of Central Kentucky we offer a "Virtual Runner/Walker" category so that you can run/walk your own 5K on the weekend of April 22-23rd to honor of Officer Ellis and other fallen heros. Register by April 7th and we will mail you your race shirt and bib in time for April 22nd. The cost of your registration fee includes postage and handling.
Proceeds will benefit the Daniel Ellis Foundation which is being established to the family. This foundation will support and distribute funds to area causes, charities and individuals that Officer Daniel Ellis would have supported. We hope to raise $75,000 or more for this Foundation which will benefit those in need in Madison County.
