About This Activity

Come out and join the Medford VFW post 7677 for the Flag Day 5K run/walk on June 11, 2016.  The course is USATF certified and cuts through Downtown Medford and through some of Medford’s farmland.  It starts on Union Street in front of Freedom Park and the Medford Police Station.  All participants will receive a race t-shirt.  Top Male and Female finishers from each age group and the top overall finishers will receive gift certificate prizes compliments of The Running Co. of Medford.  Proceeds from the race will go to support the Vineland Veterans Memorial Home which is the oldest veterans home in New Jersey.  This race is rain or shine.

Age Groups:  12 and under, 13-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+

Don’t want to run?  No problem!  Walkers are encouraged to participate as we have the roads closed for the race from 8:00-9:30 AM.

Sign-up online or by paper registration by May 27th to be guaranteed your t-shirt size.  There is a price increase on race day registration.

To help bring awareness to proper flag disposal, we are having a flag collection for your worn, battered, dirty, or damaged American flags.  Kids 12 and under who bring a flag for the collection will be entered in a drawing after the race to win one of two gift certificates to the Pop Shop in Medford.
