Chinook Winds will be hosting the Fourth Annual Run for Honor 5K on Saturday, September 17 at 9am. This run is one of the many events scheduled at Chinook Winds to honor all veterans of the armed forces, active duty personnel and their families as part of the annual city-wide “Celebration of Honor” event September 13-17, 2017.
The 5K run and walk is on a challenging up and back course on the beach. The finish will lead the runners onto the Field of Honor, 1,000 flags overlooking the Pacific Ocean directly north of the Casino. Awards will be given for top female and male finisher, age groups and veteran/active duty personnel. Veterans and active duty personnel will be honored and will also receive a free gift upon picking up their race packets. The Taft High Cross Country Team will be helping set up and take down the course as well as cheer runners on while earning much needed funds for their 2017 season.
Registration for the event is $30 and includes a t-shirt (T-shirt is not guaranteed if you register after September 4). Registration is free for Veterans and Active-Duty personnel. This is an event that you will look forward to year after year.
