Hero RunThe Hero Run has become one of the largest and most popular races in the Metro East. Offering a Fun Run, 5K and Half Marathon, the courses are a runner’s dream, FLAT! The Half Marathon route is certified through the USATF Association. The event benefits the Wounded Warrior Project, which is an organization that was formed to assist wounded soldiers after returning home from war. The Hero Run is an all-around fun race that has live music along the course to keep you moving and a route lined with American flags to keep you motivated! Make sure to stick around after the race for the popular Post Race Party with live music, food and beverages, vendors, bounce houses and a rock wall!
