Heroes Run

Supporting Heroes; Being a Hero

Join us for this day-long family fun day to salute first responders and military service members. The Heroes Run 5K recognizes the special spirit of service of those who are willing to be the first in and last out, and it honors this by supporting the food banks at the colleges of the DCCCD.

 April 14, 9 a.m.-2 p.m.

All registration fees will go to a permanent fund that the food banks can draw from to help ensure our students and community have this important resource available.   

Register to Run

We've extended discounted registration until March 7, 2018, so you can still register for just $25. After March 7, registration is still just $35. Each registrant will receive a run t-shirt and a ticket for a free run through an obstacle course. First responders, current military and veterans also will receive a commemorative paracord wristband.

Run as a Team!

If you and your crew want to run as a team, we are setting up a team competition. Each team should have four members, and team members get a $5 discount on their registration. You can also run your team through our obstacle course to see how you stack up against the competition.
