Come join us to celebrate Veteran's Day for an early morning run, followed by a parade downtown to celebrate our local Veterans! 

Funds raised from 2018 5k and Fun Run will be used to fund Veteran Events Tallahassee community outreach project, Sacred Soil.  A mobile, grass-roots program with the mission to reduce the number of Veterans experiencing homelessness in the Tallahassee area by creating authentic relationships with people living on the streets, homeless camps and Veteran housing complexes. We provide support through the distribution of food, access to community resources, other comforts and encouraging words.  

We will have gift card prizes again this year for all of our overall winners, and the first 300 participants will receive a shirt and a medal! 

Both races will be chip timed this year. We will provide yummy after-run grub, so we will feed you some snacks after while you hang around to see if you won anything in the raffle! Everyone who gets a bib will be automatically entered into the raffle drawing.
