  • Robbie's chase, a 5K and 1 Mile Walk, is set for Saturday, starting at the Santa Fe Depot.
    The race will benefit the Robbie Brooks Memorial Scholarship Fund. Scholarships will benefit students at Plainview, Ardmore, Lone Grove and Dickson Schools.
    Online registration can be made at www.getmeregistered.com/robbieschase. Race Day registration ends at 7:45 a.m. Entry fees are $35 for the 5K and $25 for the 1 Mile Walk.
    Packet pickup will be from 7 to 7:45 a.m. The race/walk will start at 8 a.m. and takes participants along a route to Central Park and through the southwest part of Ardmore before returning to Main Street and ending at the finish line on Caddo Street.
    Residents not running in the race are urged to "watch the runners and cheer them on."
    Brooks died May 26 in a boating accident on Lake Murray. An avid runner, Brooks participated in races with a group of local women who call themselves "Sole Sisters.
    According to a Robbie's chase brochure, "Robbie Brooks left a legacy of love and joy. She was an encourager, who gave freely of her time, gifts and compassion. Always smiling, quick to offer a warm reassuring hug, she loved without reservation. When she said, 'I love you,' she meant it. Robbie ran the race of life with purpose and passion. Now, we run this race to honor her and support her son Chase, and the future recipients of the Robbie Brooks Memorial Scholarship Fund."
