Everything You Need to Know Before the Fifth Annual Road Race

The Lutzie 43 Foundation is excited to host the fifth annual Road Race again on August 3rd at Lassiter High School in Marietta. The Road Race is special to the Lutzie 43 Foundation and Lutzenkirchen family, as it was one of the first events the foundation hosted shortly after Philip’s passing in 2014. The Road Race is an opportunity for the community and supporters to come together and remember Philip’s legacy, fellowship, and character. Here is everything you need to know before the Road Race!


This year’s event features a 5k and 1-mile kids fun-run around the Marietta and Lassiter High School community.

If you can’t make it to Marietta but still want to run, register as a virtual runner and run from your neighborhood with your friends or by yourself! See Virtual Runs below to find or start one near you.

You can support the Lutzie 43 Foundation without even running! Sign up to be part of the fun by registering to fundraise for the foundation. The top three fundraisers win a prize!

On-site online registration closes July 31st, on-site registration will begin at 6:30 a.m. EST on August 3rd.
