Kayla O'Mara Memorial Road Race

August 6, 2022

Goodrich, MI

2022 Registration is now available

The Kayla O'Mara Memorial Race is held annually on the first Saturday in August at Goodrich High School. We pride ourselves on hosting a quality 5k event with fast finish times, custom memorial finisher medals and a family friendly atmosphere. For 2022 we will be the Road Runners Club of America 5k State Championship Event! 

We look forward to bringing back our awards ceremony, recognizing scholarship winners and general post race vibe for 2022. No promises though, we learned not to do that in 2020. 

We always want to take the time to thank you to all of our volunteers, sponsors, participants, Atlas Township and Goodrich Area Schools for allowing this race to take place each year! We are honored to be back for our 17th running on Saturday, August 6th at Goodrich High School.
