Join the Driskill family in honoring the memories of Paul Driskill, while at the same time celebrating the miracle of his life, with a memorial 5K race on June 11.

An earlier planned half marathon had to be canceled, and the event will now include just a 5K and Kids Fun Run.

The race will begin and end at Glenwood Springs Elementary School on Saturday June 11, at 8 a.m. The cost is $10. Participants in the Kids Fun Run (10 years old and younger) race for free.

The qualities that made Paul Driskill a hero to local runners for more than two decades are still creating new admirers. Many who did not know Paul or who never had the opportunity to see him compete are inspired by his enduring example of courage, feisty determination and charisma.

Money collected will go toward the establishment of a memorial for Paul in the Glenwood Springs area.
