About the event
The Miles on Main Series, sponsored by Tazewell Today, is proud to present the “Route to Salute: Trooper Andrew D. Fox (Badge #727) Memorial Race.” A native of Tazewell, Trooper Fox valued his family, agriculture, and service to his community. Join us as we humbly remember his sacrifice in the line of duty and commemorate his legacy on this Patriot Day. Wear blue or red, white, and blue in his honor as you participate in the 5K race. We will provide you a blue light to carry, if you so choose, to remember Trooper Fox. A portion of the proceeds from this event will go towards a agricultural scholarship in memory of Andrew.
The course will run east of Main Street, with a great deal of the race taking place on sidewalk. The 5K will be professionally timed by Run Roanoke and all 5K racers will receive a medal. Race age/gender categories will be announced at a later date.
We will also have a sub-mile walk/run and the popular foam zone for the kids. Adults are also invited to register for the sub-mile walk/run. More details on this event to come.
