About This Activity

5th Annual Honor Our Fallen Run/Walk

October 21, 2017

Volunteer Registration is OPEN!

Participant Registration opens on May 1st!

The Honor Our Fallen 5K/10K Walk & Run is a tribute to our Nation's fallen heroes established by a Monterey County Gold Star Mother in 2013 who was passionate about bringing awareness to our members of the Armed Forces who lost their lives while serving our country.

 

Today, the Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare & Recreation is carrying on this memorable run and continuing to celebrate the lives of our fallen heroes and honor their surviving family members who they left behind.

 

Participants will have the chance to dedicate their run or walk in honor of a fall Service Member of their choice by adding their heroes name onto our Honor Our Fallen Virtual Wall of Remembrance. Proceeds from the event will be used to enhance support programs for our Gold Star Family Members.

 

The event will take place at the Fort Ord Dunes State Park in Marina, CA, formerly Fort Ord Army base rifle range. Both the 5K and 10K courses loop gently along the dunes of the Pacific with beautiful views of the Monterey Bay and the Monterey Peninsula. This first 1,000 registered runners will receive a t-shirt and a commemorative dog tag finisher’s medal.  

Please join your fellow runners, community members and military families in honoring the Fallen and their surviving Family members while participating in a run to remember along the Monterey Bay.
