A virtual race means you can run on your own time, on your own course. Run or walk the race – on a course of your choosing – anytime between Monday, Aug. 29 and Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 7. Check franklinclassic.org for the 2019 course map, as well as other suggested courses that will be posted at a later date.

Proceeds from the Franklin Classic are critical to Mercy’s mission: to reflect the love and compassion of Jesus Christ by providing excellent healthcare to all and support to their families. While some of Mercy’s patients have insurance, there are many who are un and underinsured and in need of affordable care, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. By registering for the Franklin Classic, you are allowing Mercy to help many families in need.

 

Cost: $15 – 1K Kids Fun Run; $40 – 5K, 10K or 15K Walk/Run
