About This Activity

Invite your family, friends & neighbors to join us for Concord’s Inaugural Veteran’s Day 10K/5K Run/Walk presented by Contra Costa Blue Star Moms CA Chapter 20.  This Veteran’s Day race was created to raise awareness and show support for our many local veterans and raise money to provide support for active duty service personnel, promote patriotism, assist Veterans organizations and assist in homeland volunteer efforts to help our country remain strong.  All proceeds from this race benefit local veterans programs Blue Star Moms supports in our area.

This 6.2 mile (10K) and 3.1 mile (5K) Run/Walk is a flat and fast out and back course route that starts in Hillcrest Park on the Delta DeAnza Trail, heads out onto the Iron Horse Trail and then loops back into Hillcrest Park by the Korean War Memorial, ending in the park.   There will be a portpottie & 2 aid stations on the 10K course (1 on the 5K course) with water and electrolyte drinks.
