Auburn Tigers: Come out and support the inaugural Lutzie 5K Road Race, honoring the memory of AU Football great Philip Lutzenkirchen. You can run, walk or volunteer!
This 5K & Fun Run fundraising event, powered by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, will take place on Saturday, August 15, 2015, at Lassiter High School in Marietta.
The race start/finish line will be inside Lassiter's football stadium, where Lutz used to play, and it features a fast, smooth run through the streets of East Cobb.
Volunteer help is also needed for this event. If you would like to lend a hand & cheer the runners, please contact Mike Leazer at: MLeazer@fca.org
Additional details from the Marietta Daily Journal:
The race will mark the culminating event in a weekend that will be filled with honors for All-SEC tight end. Lassiter's football field will be renamed Lutzie Field before a scrimmage against North Cobb on Aug. 14, and the memorial 5K will begin and end there the following morning.
An awards ceremony will follow the race with food and drinks for all runners, and bounce houses will be on hand to keep kids entertained. Sponsor tents will also be present, and several spots remain available for local businesses that are interested in participating.
Registration fees currently sit at $35 per runner, and registration will be open through the day of the race.
The Atlanta Auburn Club hopes to see a HUGE turnout of Orange & Blue at Lassiter on Aug 15! You can share this event on Facebook & add it to your calender by clicking here:
