Join us near the Wonder Bread for a 5K, a 1-mile Family Fun Run, and a Street Party that will be the best thing since sliced bread—ha, see what I did there.
Bring your mama, your best friends and all the kiddos. There will be music, food, beverages, games and fun for all ages.
This falls on Mother’s Day weekend, and the Orion 5K offers special awards in the categories of fastest Mother/Daughter, Mother/Son, Father/Son, and Father/Daughter teams.
In addition, the first 500 Orion 5K finishers will receive a commemorative medal. The overall male and female winners will also walk away with the Orion 5K championship belt, a keepsake of Memphis running excellence.
