The 4th Annual 2019 Patriots Race at White Chapel Memorial Park Cemetery will benefit Michigan veterans and their families through the Michigan Wounded and Returning Warrior Program. The race and following activities are Sunday, September 8, 2019.
All events will take place within White Chapel's beautifully landscaped 210 acre private property. The races will run through its American flag-lined road-ways and around stirring monuments to veterans and service members from conflicts as early as WWI. Race experts believe the White Chapel Patriots Race 5K and 10K courses may be the flattest, straightest and fastest in Southeast Michigan. In addition to the timed 5K and 10K runs, the race schedule will include a timed 5K and 10K run/walk and a non competitive (un-timed) 1 mile run/walk.
Every registrant will receive a t-shirt and every finisher will receive a commemorative medal. And there will be medals awarded to the top three male and female finishers.
The event includes activities for the young and the young at heart, including face painting and letter-writing to overseas service members. Post race food will be offered to the athletes in the packet pick up area.
