Event Description

We’re back!!! Join us for our 16th year!

Join us for a 4-mile, course-certified Rockford Road Runners circuit race. This unique course begins at St. Thomas Church and ends on the Aquin High School football field. Transportation is available at the finish line.  

Every year, we honor the memory of Colby J. Smith with the Colby Smith Memorial 4-Mile Classic and Colby Smith Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Trophies are awarded to the top overall male and female winners and medals are given to the top three male and female runners in all age groups. All participants will receive a long sleeve tech t-shirt.  

Proceeds from the race benefit the Colby Smith Memorial Scholarship Fund which provides scholarships for students to attend Aquin Catholic Schools. To make a contribution to the scholarship fund, which has awarded over $144,000 to students since 2010, please use the "Donate" button below.

It has been a wonderful tribute to Colby's memory and the support from all of you has been incredible. In addition to continuing the run, the Smith’s will continue to have an annual appeal for the Colby Smith Memorial Scholarship Fund.
