When the run ends its Saturday portion in Muhlenberg County Saturday afternoon, an End of Day Ceremony will be held at the Muhlenberg County High School West Campus at Kentucky 601 and Kentucky 189 in Greenville. During the Muhlenberg ceremony, Team Fastrax, a professional parachute team, will present the Colors as Lillian Chaney sings The National Anthem. Lillian is the daughter of Dr. Brian and Megan Chaney of Greenville.
