Papa’s Peach Classic will be fun for the whole family June 17, 2017. The race begins at Dickey’s Packing House with the 5K route going to the turn around and back to enjoy some mighty fine Peach Ice Cream. Running may not be what you intended, there is also a 1-Mile Fun Run. Our honored Father this year will be Kemen Miller — teacher, coach, Assistant Principal and Acting Principal of the Crawford County Middle School. Mr. Miller passed away in 2016 after a brief illness. His story will be told by family at the 2nd Papa’s Peach Classic June 17, 2017.
This race is the Saturday before Father’s Day, giving dad several ways to celebrate: he can sit on the packing house porch, enjoy ice cream or other sweet treats while he watches the family run or he can run along with them and make all of them stay behind him! Honor your dad with this family event. Dickey Farms is treating all runners with a small cup or cone of delicious peach ice cream.
Papa’s Peach Classic– honoring a special “Dad” each year. Kemen Miller, being the honored father this year served his children and all the children at the Crawford County Middle School.
