The Tampa VA Network along with the VetCoin Foundation presents the annual Fallen Hero 5k | 10K. Each September, the Fallen Hero 5k | 10k event is a way for us to come together to honor and remember our fallen heroes while paying tribute to those that are currently in the line of duty.
Bravery, strength, hard work, commitment, and dedication are just a few words to describe the men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country. This race is meant to honor that. While we run and push past our limits, each step of our journey is dedicated to those who have died for us and who continue to put their life on the line in service to our country and community. To honor fallen heroes, our remembrance signs are placed along the race route reminding us that our fallen heroes may be gone but they are not forgotten!
Proceeds from our races fund the Network and its mission and to funding events for Veterans and their families in the Tampa Bay area. For more information about this and other Network events contact our team. Better yet, come to the run and meet our Network members in person!
Remembrance signs are available for purchase!
This wouldn't be the Fallen Hero 5k | 10k without these remembrance signs being placed along the race route. The faces on these signs are the reason that we run! If you have a Fallen Hero you would like to honor, place your order for a remembrance sign today.
Be sure to provide the required information including an emailed photo of your Hero.

This course will utilize the Al Lopez Park loops. Runners MUST run the large loop first, followed by the smaller loop. This completes the 5k run. 10k runners will complete this cycle twice.
*** VERY IMPORTANT!! PLEASE READ!! ***
Our timing mats are programmed to record times only after the runner completes the course in a specific order. If the runner fails to complete the course in the following order, your time won't be recorded and there will be NOTHING we can do to help you.
5k Runners: (BIG LOOP, SMALL LOOP)
10K Runners: (BIG LOOP, BIG LOOP), (SMALL LOOP, SMALL LOOP)
Once again, 10k runners will repeat the same course as the 5k runners, only they'll run it TWICE.
