The 2021 Run to Remember is the first to be held in person, en masse since April 2019. The 2020 Memorial Marathon was held virtually as a precaution against the emerging COVID-19 pandemic.

The marathon course was damp from overnight showers, but KFOR Meteorologist John Slater said the rain moved out of the area just in time for the run to begin.

Saturday will also feature the Kid’s Marathon at 10 a.m.

Sunday’s events include the Marathon and Relay at 6:30 a.m. and the Half Marathon at 7:30 a.m.
