"A HERO IS SOMEONE WHO HAS GIVEN HIS OR HER LIFE TO SOMETHING BIGGER THAN ONESELF" - Joseph Campbell
There is no better time to honor Letcher County Heroes than the present. We all have one or more heroes in our life (parent, friend, mentor) or maybe a group of people (nurses, doctors, soldiers, military, public service officials or other front-line workers) that you consider heroes. This race gives you the chance to honor these everyday heroes.
WHO DO YOU RUN FOR? We want to give you the opportunity to run for your hero or heroes.
FORM A TEAM: Expand your race fun by starting a social team or joining an existing team. Teams can be formed by families, churches, businesses, or just random friends. All you need is a team name (Feel free to be creative!) to get started. Once you form your team invite your friends to join the fun.
We want this evening to be a patriotic night of celebrating our heroes. Come dressed in your favorite patriotic gear to show your support.
SHARE YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENT: We encourage you to share your photos on our Mountain Heritage Facebook Page once you've completed your "race". This will give our community an opportunity to celebrate your accomplishment.
PACKET PICKUP/MAILING OF PACKETS: We plan to have several opportunities for pickup packets on Sept 10th, 2021 at the Veterans Museum in Whitesburg.
SHIRTS: We will only order the shirts which are claimed through the race registration process so there will be no shirt swaps once you receive your shirt. No guarantee of getting your shirt on race day if registered after August 10th, 2021.
