Description

The first Annual Veterans and First Responders 5k run/walk and Memorial Mile run/walk, presented by Title Sponsor Splendido at Rancho Vistoso, to help raise funds for the Southern Arizona Veterans and First Responders Living Memorial at Naranja Park.  The memorial will be a place where people can go and reflect; they can honor their forefathers, grandfathers, grandmothers, aunts and uncles – whoever served. It will be an opportunity for education about veterans as well as first responders – they are equals in this memorial.

All participants who complete the run/walk or the memorial mile will receive an event shirt and finisher's medal.  

Awards will be given to the Top Three Male and Female 5k runners.  

Packet pickup will be at the venue on race morning from 0530 to 0645.  This is when you will receive your shirt (FIRST 200 ENTRIES) and timing chip.  All runners wanting an official finish time must wear a timing chip on their shoe.  You will receive your finisher's medal once you cross the finish line. 

Kids can enjoy a free Kid's Fun Run, sponsored by Dr. JAW Orthodontists and arts and crafts sponsored by the Children's Museum.  Participants can also enjoy food from two local food trucks.

**Online registration increases at 9:00 p.m. on Friday, May 19.  Onsite registrations will be available race morning until 6:30 a.m. for $50
