Heroes half marathon, 10K comes back to Port of Everett
Celebrate the heroes among us by running in the Heroes Half Marathon and 10K on April 28 at the Port of Everett.
Total Health Events is bringing the Heroes Half Marathon and 10K to the port for the third year in April.
New for 2013 is the 10K Corporate Challenge – who will be the fastest company in Everett? There is still time for local companies to form teams and compete in this competition.
Starting and finishing in the shadow of Naval Base Puget Sound, the closed-highway course crosses over the Snohomish River wetlands, from Everett to Marysville and back. Walkers, strollers and dogs are all welcome.
The Heroes Half honors the heroes among us. A portion of all race fees will be donated to the USO Northwest and Operation Homefront. A discount is available to all active military, their spouses and veterans.
The Half Marathon team category is open to active military and first responders, who will compete against each other for awards and prizes. The 10K Corporate Challenge is open to companies who will compete to be the fastest or the largest team.
The awards ceremony will include prizes for overall and age group winners.
The two-day Health and Fitness Expo will feature vendors and local sports organizations. Packet pick-up will be available Saturday, April 27, and the morning of the race at the expo.
A pre-race pasta dinner will be offered hosted by Lombardi's Italian Restaurant. The race will also include a Hero's Beer Garden from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. the day of race.
The Heroes Half is a project of Snohomish County Sports Commission and Total Health Events.
