The Running To Honor 5K is a timed, family friendly walk (or run) focused on keeping the memory of our Fallen Soldiers & Veterans alive and reminding others that Freedom is never free. The event will take place on Saturday, September 12, 2020 inside Heritage Park located at 12111 Pardee Rd, Taylor, MI 48180. The start time of the 5K & 1 Mile-ish walk (or run) is 9:00 AM in front of the Sheridan Pavilion. The Kids .5K will start at 8:30 AM.

We have added several different events this year. First and foremost we have partnered with the Purple Polka Dot 5K to offer a combo deal for both races at one great price. The goal is to help grow our small events and raise awareness of both causes that we are so passionate about.
For more information about this partnership and to learn more about the Purple Polka Dot 5K, vascular birthmarks and what all of the money raised at that event goes to click here!
We recognize that families want to bring their kids to the Running To Honor 5K but the registration cost might be too much or their kids might not be able to walk (or run) 3.1 miles. As a result we created two new events for kids 10 and under! We offer a special discounted price for the 5K walk (or run) and a .5K (that is Point 5K) which is roughly .31 miles. The hope is that this will encourage families to come out and support the cause.
If you can't walk (or run) just come out and enjoy the atmosphere and look at the names and picture of those Fallen Soldiers and Fallen Veterans that we have lost.
