Honor and remember the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice, America’s heroes who courageously gave their lives defending our country’s safety and freedom. This community-wide expression of respect and gratitude for our veterans is designed to be a combination of individual efforts.

  4. Select a day between May 23 through May 31 to complete your Honor Walk or Run of Remembrance

  5. Document your Honor Walk or Run of Remembrance by submitting "virtual results" in Run Signup between May 23 and June 4

Virtual Walk & Run Details

The Honor Walk and Run of Remembrance provide individuals with an opportunity to contribute to a community-wide effort. After registering, participants set a distance or time goal for your individual Honor Walk or Run of Remembrance. After completing the run or walk, all participants will be asked to enter the distance and/or length of time for their individual effort. After Memorial Day, everyone's individual efforts will be combined and the total distance and time recorded for the Honor Walk and Run of Remembrance will be shared via social media and emails to participants.

 

Please note: There is no official course for the virtual event. Participants determine how to complete the walk or run on their own, at a location of their own choosing at their own risk. Course suggestions will not be posted and the services typically available during an in-person race are not available for the virtual event.
