Patriots Race

The 2019 Patriots Race was the biggest EVER with a record crowd participated in the 10K, 5K and 1M events.

We paused for safety in 2020 and again in 2021, but we plan to roar back in 2022!

White Chapel Memorial Park Cemetery is and remains a beautiful race setting through flag-lined private boulevards and stirring monuments to veterans and service members from conflicts as far back as WWI. Plus, the Patriots Race features probably the flattest and fastest 10K and 5K courses in Southeastern Michigan.

Our focus remains on supporting Michigan veterans and their families, which is why, in 2022 we’ll be . . .

    1. Thanks Jack.
      There is a registration link on each website page (“Register Here”) and a price listing on the website’s Registration page, including discounts for groups and families.


    1. Yes. You can walk, run (hop or skip) the 5K, which is scheduled to begin at 9:30 AM. The 5K time-limit is 1Hr 30 Min and the Finish Line comes down at 11:30 AM. Hope to see you Sunday the 9th!


  3. I too would like to volunteer. My grandfather who was in two wars and my uncle who fought in Vietnam are both laid to rest at White chapel along with my father. I have cousins who are currently serving and a twin sister in the Navy. I support our troops 100% and as much as I would love to run my body won’t allow me too. So I would love to continue in any way I can
    Sincerely Krys Buero


  4. What time are the races?

    Note that if you have registered for any other Eventbrite event, as I have, you will not get taken to the Patriots Race. Instead you get an odd looking page noting there are many events. Then you see a long list of events in your area. Scroll to the bottom to find the race. 🙄


  5. I just learned of this event and can’t go this year. Will there be another fundraiser race in 2019? I want to save the date!
    Thank you


    1. Sorry that you can’t join us this year, Lin.
      YES – the 2019 Patriots Race is scheduled for Sunday, September 8, 2019. Early-Bird discounted registration will be available following this year’s race. Mark your calendar!


  6. So where do I go to registar today? Also are you selling just T shirts I can’t walk or run but bring my niece. My daughter and I cheer her on and in the past have bought a t shirt.
