The Honor Our Fallen 5K/10K Walk & Run is a tribute to our Nation's fallen heroes established by a Monterey County Gold Star Mother, who was passionate about bringing awareness of our members of the Armed Forces who lost their lives while serving our country.

Today, the American Legion Post 31, Salinas, CA is making it possible for us to continue Honoring Our Fallen Heroes, celebrating their lives and honoring their sacrifice and the sacrifice of their surviving family members who they left behind.

The event will take place at the Fort Ord Dunes State Park in Marina, CA, formerly Fort Ord Army base rifle range. Both the 5K and 10K courses loop gently along the dunes of the Pacific with beautiful views of the Monterey Bay and the Monterey Peninsula. This first 1,500 registered runners will receive a t-shirt, a commemorative dog tag finisher’s medal, and bag.

Please join your fellow runners, community members and military families in honoring the Fallen and their surviving Family members while participating in a run to remember along the Monterey Bay.
