Memorial Day Flag Relay taking place in Baldwin County on Monday May 25, 2020.
For the past ten years, runners have escorted flags in Baldwin County on Memorial Day and this year, rain or shine, will be no different. We will continue this tradition to honor our fallen heroes and keep their name and legacy alive.
This year, two groups of runners with police escorts will start simultaneously (one in Loxley and one in Foley) and move South, handing off the flags every mile and a half to three miles, to the next group of runners. The Loxley group (Route 1) will end in Foley. The Foley group (Route 2) will end in Orange Beach. This Memorial Day Flag relay will total approximately 37 miles.
Additionally, signs will be placed every mile along the route to honor fallen service members. The signs will contain a picture, name, and date deceased of the hero. Following the run, the signs will be collected and redistributed accordingly.
