Armed Forces Day 5K Race


Run in the honor of the veterans who have courageously served our country

The Armed Forces Day 5K is steeped in tradition as you will literally run through the living history of the VA that began in the immediate aftermath of the Civil War. This beautiful rolling campus has many historic buildings that are on the National Registry. The course winds you past the National Cemetery, the famous Grotto and Gardens, the historic Home Chapel and through the ghosts of times past when nearly 7,000 Civil War Veterans called “The National Asylum” home. A pancake breakfast has been donated by the American Red Cross Dayton Chapter and will be available for all registered runners.

All proceeds benefit The American Veterans Heritage Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring the memory of and educating the public in the history and sacrifices of American Veterans.
