    In honor of Audrey Griffin:

    Audrey Griffin wore many hats in Oak Grove, She was Car Show Chairman, served as alderman and was mayor of Oak Grove from April 1992- to December 1993.  But we all know and remember her as Race Director of the Paul Revere Run since 1983.  She was the director for 20 years and her granddaughter ran in that run since she was the age of 5.  Audrey Griffin passed away in November of 2010 and her granddaughter decided she had to keep her grandmother's dream going.  Her granddaughter, Jana has now stepped into her grandmother's running shoes and takes the lead in keeping her legacy alive.

    COVID-19 Protocol

    To help keep Social Distancing: Everyone will need to stay 6 ft apart and wear a

     

    mask on site at all times in order to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

     

    At the registration table. The tables will be 6 ft apart one for 5K and one for 10K.

     

    Runners can fill out their registration forms with a clean pen that they can grab
