About This Activity

Join us for the 2nd annual Nucor Hero Dash 5k and 1 Mile Fun Run.  This event will be held on a certified course.  You will run through old downtown Decatur and see some of the historic homes and businesses in the area.

All proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society.  This is a fantastic opportunity to give back to an organization committed to eliminating cancer.  This race is designed for both runners and walkers.  We encourage (not require) you to dress up as your favorite hero (military service person, police officer, firefighter, your mom, your dad, etc.) or super hero (Superman, Wonderwoman, Batgirl, Supergirl, Batman, Robin, Ninja Turtles, etc.)

5k runners are guaranteed a tech shirt if registered by March 1, 2015.  Fun run participants will receive a regular shirt if registered by March 1, 2015. 

Participants that register after March 1, 2015 will receive shirts as available.

Children who participate in the 1 Mile Fun Run will receive a special goodie bag if registered by March 1, 2015.

If you are interested in sponsoring this event or volunteering, please contact Kelly Petzold at or 256-560-4866.
