Join us on Saturday, August 24th at 8am, Freeport, IL

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

The run is a 4-mile, course-certified, Rockford Road Runners circuit race. The 12th annual race will be held in Freeport on Saturday, August 24. 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. To register for the race, use the "Register Now" button below.

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 $80,000 to students since 2010, please use the "Donate" button below.

Thank you for your support!
