Get Your Rear in Gear - Alexandria 5K run/walk including the Tekeste Mengistu Memory Mile.
The 5K started in 2009 in memory of Tony Snow and others we have lost to colon cancer. 2014 adds the Tekeste Mengistu Memory Mile which will be the third mile of the 5K. We will remember all those that we have lost to colon cancer by placing blue flags along the course in their memory. You will be able to dedicate a flag at packet pick up or on race morning to be placed along the Memory Mile of the course.
