The Prisoner Of Conscience Run was inaugurated in 2002 in honor of
Erik Johnson and
Patrick Liteky who were both incarcerated that year for civil disobedience at the SOAW and the Y12 complex in Oak Ridge respectively. The run grew into support for all prisoners of conscience regardless of the action.
It is an annual one day event that takes place the first Saturday in October.
Opening ceremony will be at 8Am at Masterson Station Park which is adjacent to the Lexington Federal Medical Correctional Institution.
Peace Hostel Lexington will be hosting the Peacemakers who want to come the evening before and stay overnight to avoid having to drive to Lexington early Saturday morning. Please contact Peace Hostel Lexington for directions.
