Run for the Heroes 5K, 10K, & Honor Walk

Florence, SC

Start your belated Memorial Day off right by remembering our military who died while on active duty in our armed services and by burning some calories in the Annual Run for the Heroes 5k, 10k, or 1 mile honor walk.  These annual races honor the men and women who have given their lives to preserve the freedoms of our great country. We also recognize the current sacrifices of our Active and Reserve personnel and their families.  It is a cherished Memorial Day event that incorporates national pride while promoting a healthy and active lifestyle.  There will be a military tribute prior to the race and all registered participants will receive a “Red, White, and Blue” pancake breakfast immediately following the race.  Non-race participants are welcome to enjoy breakfast for a voluntary, nominal donation.  Runners and walkers of all experience levels are invited to come out and enjoy this Memorial Day event!  Military discounts are available.  Proceeds benefit St Anthony School with a portion being donated to the local American Red Cross.  Run for the Heroes is a Pee Dee Grand Prix race that you won't want to miss.
