Come join us for the 2019 Hero Run! This year we will have a 5k run/walk and a one-mile fun run. We will keep to our theme of superheroes, so come dressed in your favorite hero costume.

Race Description/Details*:
The race will begin at Lake Benson park shelter 1. Runners will do the loop around Lake Benson Park, cross Buffaloe road and do an additional loop around White Deer Park. There will be a Garner Police officer stationed at the road crossing for the safety of runners/walkers. The route is a mix of pathed and un-pathed trails, runners will appreciate the relatively flat trail while walkers will enjoy the beautiful path around the lake.

Parking is located at Lake Benson Park, 921 Buffaloe Rd, Garner. Follow our signs to the starting line.

This year’s hero run is dog friendly. We just ask that all dogs be on a leash and runners/walkers with dogs begin at the back of the group.

All funds go towards continued outreach and education statewide.
