Emily's Run set for Sunday

Race two of this year's Greater L-A Triple Crown 5K Series will be held Sunday, July 25.

A Kids' Fun Run will be held at 8:15 a.m., and Emily's Run will kick off at 9 a.m. Event day registration is open from 7:15 to 8:30 a.m.

The 5K course, which starts and ends at Edward Little High School, is considered moderately hilly. Runners will leave the high school, turning right on Western Avenue, left up Court Street, right down Park Avenue, right on Gamage Avenue, right on Shepley Street, left on Lake Street, right on Fern Street, left on Granite Street, right on Court Street and then a quick left on Harris Street heading back to EL.

Motorists are urged to be patient when passing runners.

Emily's Run is organized in memory of Emily Fletcher, a standout runner while attending EL, who died in a car accident in 2004. All proceeds benefit the Fletcher Foundation, which will donate one or more $1,000 scholarships to deserving Edward Little students and make a significant contribution to the Auburn Public Library.

Emily's Run

GOD Bless her legacy, and the event, from a former cross country runner, many years ago! In theLHS, Coach Ross era!
