Heroes of Midlothian Foundation
5K Benefit Run

Our mission is to honor and assist soldiers, firefighters, law enforcement, and other public servants who sacrifice for our communities and country.  

"NO PERSON WAS EVER HONORED FOR WHAT HE RECEIVED.
HONOR HAS BEEN THE REWARD FOR WHAT HE GAVE."
President Calvin Coolidge


Past events had hundreds of participants of all ages running, jogging, or walking. Join us for this year's Seventh Annual Hero's Run 5K, presented by Holcim, on May 18th.

All proceeds from the event help support the Foundation's charitable mission.

RUN DETAILS

Registration and late-packet pick-up will begin at 7AM day of event. Opening ceremony begins at 8AM. The 5K Run and Fun Walk will take off at 8:30AM following the opening ceremony and warm up.

  1. Pre-registration online is strongly encouraged.  Registration Coming Soon.

For you competitive folks, the 5K run is chip-timed. For you non-competitive folks, don't worry, your time will be our little secret.  Running, jogging, and walking are all permitted.  We do ask that child-runners, those planning to walk, or those taking a jogging stroller start near the end of the pack.  Since timing chips are used, the big bang at the start is not as important.

The route begins at the softball complex/MISD stadium area on 14th street, and travels to the access road of the Highway 287 bypass, across Midlothian Parkway, down to Mt. Zion, crosses over Highway 287 bypass, and returns on 14th street to finish at the same place as the start.  Got lost?  Here's a map.  Oh, and there will be plenty of orange cones and direction/encouragement the day of the event, so don't worry.
