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.
