About This Activity

Please join us as we honor our Fallen Veterans during this special holiday event, recognizing them for their ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.  The day starts with a special salute to our Fallen Veterans at 8:30 a.m., followed by our race/walk.

5K Runners and Walkers have the opportunity to bring attention to their own military service, or to dedicate their participation to a friend or family member who served. Free tee shirts for runners and walkers, prizes awarded for top runners in each age and group category with registration. Timing will be handled by To The Finish LLC. For more information or to sign up, see below.

We ask that any active, reserve or inactive Veterans join us at 8:30 a.m. for a salute to the fallen and to our country’s flag. If you know a Veteran please share this event with them. We are offering a 10% discount for all Veterans participating in the 5K. Coupon code: VETERAN
