Forrest Spence 5k

Race Information

What an amazing race we had this year!  We are so proud to say that we had 1344 participants this year and raised approximately $69,000

The weather on August 24th was perfect in every way.  The sun was shining and it wasn’t too terribly hot.  Everyone was in good spirits and ready to start the morning full of fun and activities.  The day started with door prizes that were given out throughout the morning along with speeches from those that the Forrest Spence Fund has impacted.  

After the 5K we had a 100-yard dash for the young kids followed by a 1 mile fun run for kids 12 & under.  It was so neat to see so many children get involved for such a worthy cause and run their little hearts out. 

There were also plenty of yummy goodies to enjoy while watching the kids play at the Kids Corner on the Moon Bounce, Large Slide and get their faces painted. 

*The Forrest Spence Fund t-shirts and awards are located at Fleet Feet in East Memphis (4530 Poplar Ave Memphis, TN 38117). If you are a ghost runner in Shelby County and/or didn't receive your shirt on race day than please go by Fleet Feet to pick it up. If you didn't pick up your award on race day than please pick that up at Fleet Feet as well. If you live outside of Shelby County than your ghost runner shirt will be mailed to you the week of September 9th. 

We are so thankful to all those that were a part of the Forrest Spence 5k.  Thank you for helping make it such a big success and we hope to see you next year on August 23rd at the 7th Annual 5k.
