This year, Field of Heroes has modified the annual 5k to the “Hero Hike”, presented by OhioHealth.  This allows people to purchase an exclusive package that includes an official Field of Heroes t-shirt featuring the 2021 theme of Dignity & Duty, a limited edition commemorative challenge coin, flag coupon, and other goodies in a Field of Heroes recyclable tote.  

A map will be included in your packet with a 1, 2 or 3 mile hike and each participant can choose a route to complete at their leisure anytime throughout the Memorial Day weekend (May 29-31).  All routes will start/finish within the 3,000 full size American flags. 

Cost is only $35 and totes may be picked up at the Field of Heroes (325 N. Cleveland Ave) beginning at 4:00PM on Friday, May 28th.  

If you choose to participate in the Virtual Option, virtual race packets will be shipped at an additional cost and must be pre-ordered by May 23 as items will be shipped on May 24th and prior to May 28th.  You may walk or run your Virtual Race anywhere you choose and any distance you choose. 

The races WILL NOT be timed this year.
