The Honor Run Half will precede the 5K Run/Walk and is the opening to "The County Remembers". Honor Run Half is FREE, however, donations are gladly accepted. Participants are encouraged to wear patriotic attire. All participants will begin at the Blue Moose Restaurant in Monticello, run the 13.1 miles down the old dirt railbed (course is unsupported and not certified in distance), into Houlton. Once in Houlton , each of the dedicated runners will accept flag transfer from Maine Army National Guard Members. Each Flag will have a pictorial representation of an Aroostook County, Maine service member who has made the Ultimate Sacrifice since September 11, 2001. As a group, the runners and flags will then be escorted by the Patriotic Motorcycle Group to the Millar Civic Center. The flags will then be displayed as "Flags of Honor", officially beginning the day of honoring and remembering, aptly named "The County Remembers".
