The Bill Mitchell Fun Run has been a Palmer community event for years. The run was originally organized by Bill Mitchell who believed  in leading an active life. Although he recently passed away, we will continue on this year in memory of him as the Bill Mitchell Memorial Run. 

 

A Little About Bill Mitchell:

Bill Mitchell was a World War ll Veteran who served in the Pacific. He was an advocate and supporter of the Mat-Su Valley throughout the years especially when it came to running and events promoting a healthy lifestyle.
