The communities of Mayerthorpe and Whitecourt were devastated by the deaths of four young RCMP Constables, March 3, 2005. In the midst of the grief and shock the citizens of each community conducted themselves with dignity and respect and showed the world the pride rural communities have in their RCMP.
The Fallen 4 Marathon Society has decided to recognize the ultimate sacrifice that Constables Peter Schiemann, Leo Johnston, Anthony Gordon and Brock Myrol made. The brutality and senselessness of their deaths has been overwhelming for the communities of Mayerthorpe and Whitecourt and the rest of Canada. This was a very sad and painful moment in the history of our country, and we have decided start a memorial marathon/relay in their honor.
The race will start at the Fallen Four Memorial Park in Mayerthorpe and end in Whitecourt.
There are 4 legs to our Marathon relay event:
