Hands & Hearts for Horses Veterans Day 5K & 1-mile Fun Run/Walk

Sun April 30, 2023 Thomasville, GA 31792 US Directions

April 30 2023 Race - Cancelled

Hello! Due to changes in the property that we hold this race on, we've made the difficult decision to cancel the race on April 30, 2023.  The property is surrounded by private property and after review of private property hunting time frames, the property owners and our organization have decided that it will not be safe to host a race in the woods during an active hunting season.  We hope to find a better time to host this race in the future and truly appreciate your patience.  We will be pursuing other avenue to support our veterans and their families through our program and in conjunction with the VA.

We will be more than happy to refund your registration fees! Please keep an eye out for future events with us! We're so sorry again for this cancellation! 

Here Are Your Options:

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

We understand completely!  We hope you can join us for an event on a later date!
