2020 VALOR 5K Cancelled- We'll be back in 2021!

We regret to inform our VALOR 5K runners, staff, sponsors, and supporters that we are cancelling the VALOR 5K for this year, based on the recommendations of the CDC and local public safety officials. As much as we want to have this event, the welfare of our runners and supporters is paramount. No social event is worth jeopardizing public health and safety. Unfortunately, due to the nature of this issue and the lack of resources for a postponed date, we will not be able to reschedule the event for this year. We are just as disappointed about having to make this decision as you, our runners and supporters are to hear it. We were very excited about what this event represents and the cause it supports. We are in the process of issuing refunds to all of those who have pre-registered. The VALOR 5K staff has started the refund process through Runsignup, however they are not releasing the funds until after the race date has passed. Please do not do a chargeback through your credit card provider. Please be patient as we work through this process. We WILL make sure everyone will receive their refund in full.

We will also be sending out correspondence to our sponsors about the status of their donations and potential return as well. We greatly appreciate EVERYONE’S support thus far! If you have any questions or concerns about this event, please feel free to message us on this page, or email us at We WILL be back in 2021 for the VALOR 5K! In fact, go ahead and write the date on your calendars! March 27th, 2021! Until then, be safe and smart as we move forward through this issue together.

VALOR... though it is intangible, it is quite measureable. VALOR means "great courage in the face of danger." The VALOR 5K, formerly known as the Trooper Manion Memorial 5K & Kids Mile, is a 5K run that honors ALL public safety and military personnel. There are many people throughout this great country who exemplify the meaning of VALOR every day- police officers, fire fighters, military personnel, and so many more. We wanted to take what was started with the Trooper Manion Memorial 5K & Kids Mile, and broaden it to ALL those who serve and sacrifice. We all know someone who serves, or has served in Law Enforcement, Fire and Rescue, and our Armed Forces. They are a special breed of people, putting their service above self. We dedicate this event to ALL of those who have served, or continue to serve. It is said, "In Valor There is Hope". No truer words can be said about our first responders and military, and the hope that lies with those in need of valor in times of strife and tragedy.

The VALOR 5K will take place ON the runway of the Winchester Regional Airport located at 491 Airport Road Winchester, VA 22602. The course will be flat and fast! There will be military, fire & rescue, and law enforcement  apparatus along the running route for the runners to enjoy. A memorial area will be set up near the route where local law enforcement  agencies, fire & rescue departments, and military personnel can honor those who have passed away in the line of duty, or left their profession in an untimely manner.
