Event Description

The 2nd Annual Veterans and First Responders 5k run/walk and Memorial Mile run/walk, presented by Title Sponsor Splendido at Rancho Vistoso, to help raise funds for the Southern Arizona Veterans and First Responders Living Memorial at Naranja Park.  The memorial will be a place where people can go and reflect; they can honor their forefathers, grandfathers, grandmothers, aunts and uncles – whoever served. It will be an opportunity for education about veterans as well as first responders – they are equals in this memorial.

All participants who sign up by April 19, 2018, and complete the run/walk or the memorial mile will receive an event shirt. Everyone will receive a custom finisher's medal and a slice of pizza sponsored by Rosati's Pizza Sports Pub once you cross the finish line.  


5k Road and Trail Awards will be given to the Top Three Male and Female overall winners. 

5k Road Awards will also be given to the Top Three Male and Female in each Age Group. Age groups are: <14; 15-19; 20-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; 60-69; 70-79; 80>.
