It's an annual race with plenty of tradition, but this year the torch relay, held on the eve of the Ogden Newspaper Half Marathon Classic, will involve a moving tribute to local veterans.
This year Word War II and Korean War Veterans will receive a special honor.
Race Director Bob Scatterday is reaching out to the families of these veterans.
he's looking for names and bios of the soldiers so they can be honored at a special ceremony following the relay.
"I can't imagine having done what they've done and they've never been recognized for that, it's amazing. So it's our attempt doing that before they're gone," said Scatterday.
Scatterday is asking veterans and their families to call him at (304) 233-1312 to get their heroic stories so they can be honored during a special ceremony after the torch relay.
The ceremony will be held at Heritage Port and each individual Veteran will be recognized.
