Gold Star Mission Run for the Fallen
May 11 @ 8:00 am
Gold Star Mission Run for the Fallen

Please join us for the Run for the Fallen Half Marathon Run, 5k Run/Walk, and 3k Run/Walk by honoring and supporting Gold Star Families and our Fallen Heroes. All races will be held primarily within three beautiful Winnebago County Forest Preserves; Kishwaukee, Blackhawk Springs and Espenschied. Much of the half marathon is on trails ranging from grassy double-track to twisting and technical single-track. The remainder is on paved roads and paths. The 5k Run/Walk utilizes a mix of paved and gravel. The 3K Run/Walk utilizes paved roads. Both races traverse a stretch of private property that is only open to registered racers on the day of the race. Scenic, well-marked, and with plenty of aid stations, these two events are ideal for first timers, but can also be a challenging race for experienced trail runners. Both courses will be supported and remain open for four hours, 8 AM to noon. The Gold Star Mission is a nonprofit organization that seeks to Honor and Support Gold Star Families by preserving the memory of our Fallen Heroes through service to others in need.

ALS Awareness 5k @ Stag-R-Inn
Aug 17 @ 8:30 am

This is a great event for all ages and all types of runners and walkers. For the competitive runner, it is a chip-timed race with prizes. For the casual runner or walker, it’s all about joining the cause and having a good time. If you don’t want to run or walk the full 5k, there is a shortcut you can take. The more participants, the more money we raise to help find a cure for ALS.

All walkers and runners will get a t-shirt, post-race fruit and water, a free drink ticket you can use at the Stag-R-Inn, and a post-race meal. Spectators and non-participants may also enjoy the meal with a freewill donation. Following the race, you can continue to hang out at the Stag-R and enjoy drinks, food, bags tournament, DJ, and more!

The course is all asphalt. The race starts at the Stag-R, winds its way out into the countryside, comes back through town, and finishes back on Main Street in front of the Stag-R-Inn. Awards will be given to the top male and female runners in several categories for each. Even if you can’t walk or run in the race, you can still participate or donate. Contact us for more information!

Awards will be given to the first place male and female finishers. Race categories for top 3 finishers in each category for male and female.
