The Wiregrass JROTC Centennial Celebration 5K Run/Walk

Daleville High School, 626 N.Daleville Ave., Daleville, AL 36322
Celebrate the JROTC 100th Anniversary with Cadets from throughout the Wiregrass! There will be age and team category awards but all are welcome and encouraged to attend. Bring your family members of any age to walk or run (even the 4 legged variety). Although we will use a top of the line timing system, this is less of a serious race and more of a community event. JROTC organizations around the world will be hosting 5Ks simultaneously in an effort to break the current Guinness world record. Let's show them how we do COMMUNITY here in the Wiregrass!

The 2016 Five Points of Life Kids Marathon is just a few of calendar pages away, and it’s a good time for youngsters to register and start charting their miles. Last year over 200 kids participated. Don’t miss out-Register Today!

Five Points of Life is a foundation started by LifeSouth to raise awareness of the five ways to share life with others through the donation of blood, apheresis, marrow, cord blood and organ and tissue. It also offers classroom programs to students in the Wiregrass area that teach the science and social responsibility of donating. The kids marathon promotes fitness and offers lessons in goal setting.

Participants in kindergarten through eighth grade will run or walk the full 26.2 mile marathon distance a little bit at a time, logging their distance as they go. Then on March 5th at Northview High School, Dothan, they’ll have the opportunity to celebrate their accomplishment and earn a medal at the finish line. It starts at 8:30 a.m. All participants also receive a T-shirt.

Registration is free until Feb. 10th, and entry forms and running logs are available online at, or at LifeSouth’s Wiregrass headquarters next to Jim Skinner Honda at 3833 Ross Clark Circle. Call 334-792-9997 for information.
