“The FORE!

Their support has made it possible for the FORE! Miler to raise important funds for Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation, while also highlighting the alliance with the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation.”
The Memorial Tournament, scheduled for May 29 – June 4, will once again collaborate with M3S Sports to operate the FORE! Miler. The Memorial and M3S will work closely with City of Dublin officials to create a first-class race experience for participants and Dublin residents alike.
"Dublin is proud to be a healthy and amenity-rich city with an ideal environment for all to thrive, and the FORE! Miler aligns perfectly with our vision of being a resilient community that values physical and mental wellness,” said City Manager Megan O’Callaghan. “The race has become a beloved tradition that kicks off one of the most important weeks of the year in our city. It is an opportunity for everyone, especially our valued residents in Muirfield Village, to participate or cheer on the participants who help raise money and awareness for the worthy causes supported by the Memorial Tournament presented by Workday."
