SATURDAY, MAY 24, 2014 The event, sponsored by VFW Post 10818 and The Centre is intended to raise public awareness and financial support for local veterans. 

The Veteran's Memorial Run, sponsored by VFW Post 10818, is a great way to start your Memorial Day weekend.  The 10 Mile Run is a perfect option for runners peaking for a marathon with numerous rolling hills on country roads and a finish that is nicely downhill.  The 5K Run/Walk is on city streets and is generally flat except for a modest hill at approximately 2 miles.  Proceeds from the event will provide financial supports for local veterans and their families.

All events will start and finish at the Community Commons
421 S. Green Ave., New Richmond, WI 54017.

The 10-Mile Run will be on city streets and blacktopped country
roads. The course includes numerous rolling hills with the final
two miles downhill with a flat finish. The course will not be
closed to traffic so runners will have to stay on the left side of
the road throughout the course. At least three aid stations will be
on the course with water and energy drink.

The 5K will be on city streets and paved bike paths.
There is only one modest hill at approximately 2 miles.
The course will not be closed to traffic
and one aid station is planned for the course.
