About This Activity

New this asked for it and we responded: Introducing for 2022, the first Tri-State Warrior Run HALF MARATHON!

Come join us for this wonderful family event that benefits the Tri-State Warrior Outreach, supporting unmet needs of area Veterans and their families since 2012.

The 5k route will take participants from Bob Mays Park along the Bill Klingner & Cedar Creek Trails then around the historic grounds of the IL Veterans Home to see extraordinary architecture, peaceful woods, the Deer Park, US Military memorials and go past the inspirational Avenue of Flags. The 10K challenges runners along hills through Sunset Cemetery and the Medal of Honor Memorial then to the end of the Cedar Creek Trail before looping around the IL Veteran's Home grounds to finish back at Mays Park. This year's NEWEST event is a challenging Half Marathon that you will LOVE to say you Conquered that takes you from the start in Mays Park to Sunset Cemetery, the Mississippi River and the Historic IL Veteran's Home covering, all of the Klingner trail then back to the Finish!

Our 1 mile walk is a paved out & back in Mays Park along the Klingner Trail. Custom dog tag-style medals for all event finishers.

RETURNING THIS YEAR! VIRTUAL 5K, 10K & Half Marathon OPTIONS-virtual submissions may begin at 6am 10/30/22 for those unable to make it on race Day. Virtual runners will get a shirt and medal if registered by 10/21/22.

There will be chip timing for the event but be advised that the 5k, 10k & Half Marathon routes cross RR tracks at the IL Veterans Home so there is a good chance you might have an unexpected break should a train come through. See all running routes and our 1 mile walk on our Facebook pages for the Tri-State Warrior Outreach and Tri State Warrior Run.

Weather: late October in West Central IL can be anywhere from mild 50s-60s to 20s & 30s-we've had everything since this race began so watch the local weather for what to expect race week! No matter what the temperature happens to be, it's always a beautiful day to run at Mays Park and the historic IL Vet's Home-the oldest in the U.S. and worth the visit!

Shirt sizes are guaranteed only with online registration by Friday 10/21/22. Online Registration ends at midnight Thursday 10/27/21. Packet pickup and late registration will be Saturday 10/29/22 from 1pm-6pm at Running Wild 3502 Broadway Quincy IL. There will be no registration on Race Day. For more info email:

RACE START: Participants will line up for the start at 7:45am. Due to the narrowness of the trail start, the events will begin at 8:00am with the Half Marathon, 8:05am for the 10k, 8:10am for the 5k and 8:15am for all walkers.

Additional Park District Parking available on the East side of 18th St off the Klingner Trail and after-hours parking in the industrial park.
