Join us in celebrating our 10th Anniversary of the Bull Falls Brewery Never Forgotten Honor Flight 5K Run/Walk!

 

NEVER FORGOTTEN HONOR FLIGHT:

Our veterans are an integral part of our society. It is in their honor that we invite you to help us support these courageous people. All proceeds for this event will be donated to the Never Forgotten Honor Flight. This organization is committed to fly our World War II, Korean, and Vietnam War veterans to Washington, D. C. to view their memorials at no cost to the veterans. The amount needed, per veteran sponsored, is $500. For more information about Honor Flight, please see their website – http://www.neverforgottenhonorflight.org. There will be additional opportunities to make donations throughout the afternoon. To date, this event has attracted more than 10,000 participants the last 9 years and has raised over $112,635.47, sending 225 area veterans! Your generosity is greatly appreciated. Thank you! Click here if you are interested in sending someone you know on the Honor Flight.



RULES OF THE ROAD: 



The entire race route is planned on OPEN city streets and crossings, use caution! Please run/walk in single file, except when passing. Volunteer Race officials will be wearing orange or yellow vests, please obey race officials and yield to emergency vehicles. THERE ARE SOME HILLS. Approach them based upon your experience and comfort level in running or walking. Any participant on the course after 1:30 pm will need to finish course route on their own, as all Event Staff will be back at the brewery enjoying the Bull Falls Bock Fest at that time. Again, Thank you!!

BOCK BUSTER ROUTE:



The 
BOCK BUSTER race course is a run-only route. Although we understand if you walk a few steps to get to the top of that first hill. We know, it's a killer. You will follow the run/walk course out of the Start and head east on McIntosh for 1.55 miles, turn around and come back the same way. There is a 45 mph section on the course, so keep your head up for passing vehicles! Don't be afraid to give this route a try.  It’s tough, but just think how good the beer will taste when you’re done!



RACE TIMES: 



Both the 5K and Bock Buster routes will begin at 12:00 p.m. A ceremony will begin at 11:45 that will honor our Veterans and cover important race day announcements. Please be in the starting area prior to announcements. Course time limit is 90 minutes. 



RACE ROUTE: 



Restroom facilities will be near the start/finish line and in the beer garden. A water station will be located just before mile 1 and you will pass it again after mile 2. Note: There is no water station on the BOCK BUSTER route. 5K Route turn around street is a left turn onto Lincoln Ave. Strollers and baby joggers are permitted and must start at the rear of the group. Dogs are allowed on course route, provided they are on a short leash and start in the rear of the group. Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed in the beer garden area.
