The 5th Annual Veterans and First Responders Memorial 5k run/walk and Memorial Mile run/walk helps 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 30, 2021, will receive an event shirt. At the finish line, everyone will receive a custom finisher's medal.


5k Awards (Trail and Run divisions) will be given to the Top Three Male and Female overall winners.

Medallions 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>.
