Join Girls on the Run Memphis in Honoring Liza's Memory

Pink and purple announcement

Girls on the Run Memphis shares in the responsibility to honor Liza Fletcher's memory and RUN HER RUN.


This run was created by friends of Liza's and members of our running community as way to honor Liza and cope with our own feelings.

The run is 8.2 miles taking a path she would regularly run. It will start near Central and Belvedere and run down Central to Zach Curlin St and back toward Belvedere.

THE GOAL: Stand up for the women in the Mid South and emphasize that women should be able to safely run any time of day.

This run is not sanctioned by the family and is not a fundraiser.

Water stops are being provided at three locations on the 8.2 mile course.

If you plan to attend we ask that you follow these guidelines:

  • Wear Bright Colors and a bright light if you have it
  • Do not come alone
  • No Strollers
  • No Dogs
  • No Bikes
  • Walkers are welcome but must finish your distance by 7 a.m.


While media may be present, we kindly request that participants do not speak to the media out of respect for the family.
