“In 2011 one of Clay County’s beloved citizens lost a hard-fought battle to cancer,” said Josh Watson, one of the annual event’s organizers. “We want to dedicate this run/walk to his memory

and to honor Mr. Smith by donating the proceeds to the Relay for Life.”

Preregistration applications will be accepted until Sept. 15, with registrants guaranteed a commemorative T-shirt. Registration will be available on the day of the Memorial 5K Walk/Run, but no T-shirt is guaranteed. Registration is $20 for individuals or $50 for a family with children under age 18 living in the same household. Registration and pre-registration packet pick-up will begin at 7:30 a.m. the day of the race.

“The 5k course is relatively flat with occasional slight grades,” Watson said, adding that the 5K begins and ends at Dale Hollow Dam Park.

Watson said that those who are unable to attend but wish to make a memorial donation or sponsor another participant may learn more by calling 800-231-3695 or by emailing
