Event Description

Jim and Nedra Lemke left a legacy of loving God and loving people. For many years they were youth leaders at Faith Community Church, impacting the lives of many youth, families, and other youth leaders. Jim and Nedra were also avid runners. When Jim and Nedra were killed in June 2020, we decided this event would be a fitting way to remember them and pass on part of their legacy. Funds raised through the Lemke Legacy 5k Run/Walk will be given to the youth group at Faith Community Church (Fort Atkinson) to provide financial help for students' participation in youth group trips and retreats.
The course is a simple out-and-back on the Glacial River Trail in Fort Atkinson, WI. The starting/finishing line will be at the Lions Shelter. We will have Nedra's cinnamon rolls as part of post-race goodies.
For parking, we have permission to use the Nasco parking lot closest to the Fireside. Or you can park on the streets in the nearby neighborhood. *There are no restrooms on site.
You will get a tshirt as part of registration if you register on or before July 15. We will be ordering extra shirts, so if you register after July 15 you can stop by the registration table on the day of the race - extra shirts will be first-come-first-serve.
**If you are registering as a family, please contact the race director about getting a family discount.
