About The Race

The American Legion Veterans Memorial 5K Run and Tot Trot returns on November 12, 2022!  This will be our eighth annual 5k Run in Marietta, Georgia.

Horace Orr American Legion Post 29 of Marietta produces the event.  Post 29 is one of the oldest Legion posts in America, founded September 29, 1919.  You can learn more about our Post 29 history here.  This event fulfills several of our mandates as a Veterans organization.  The money we raise is all distributed to honorable charities serving veterans in need in our community and state.  The 5k Run helps us engage with the non-veteran community in a positive and patriotic manner sharing our belief in Americanism, patriotism, and the importance of honoring our fallen veterans.

This is a fun, family event that continues to grow each year.  We hope you will spend the day at the Marietta Square, running safely, and helping us support our veteran’s causes.
