Monroe Distance Classic, Downtown Monroe, 1120 Oliver Road, Monroe
The Monroe Distance Classic was established in 2018 with a 2-fold mission. The first was to encourage the community to embrace a more active lifestyle. The second was to become a NELA major racing event to kickoff the fall road racing calendar. The Monroe Distance Classic inaugural events will consist of a 5K and Half-marathon through mid-town Monroe, LA.
The Monroe Distance Classic will raise funds to support Team WillPower Foundation benefiting St Jude Children’s Research Hospital. St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. And families never receive a bill from St. Jude — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
