Welcome to the 7th Annual 911 Remembrance Half Marathon, 5K/10K/10M!
This year we partner with the Arvada Harvest Festival in presenting yet another great event, benefitting Homefront Heroes and celebrating the Star Spangled Banner Bicentennial!
This event begins at the library in Olde Towne Arvada and finishes at McIlvoy Park. And, of course, following the event is the post-race expo with vendors, entertainment and awards, followed by the Arvada Harvest Festival! While this event is definitely one for the whole family, it is also a phenomenal running event for participants of all levels! It includes a quality high-tech-tee, finisher's medals and awards medals. It's a great training event for any fall marathon - so, use it as a first-time event, a time-trial training event or just as your way of honoring America's current and active military heroes!
AMERICA GOES THE DISTANCE!
