‘Heroes’ race supports military

EVERETT — The third annual Heroes Half Marathon and 10K, celebrating retired and active military, is set for April 28 and will run from Everett to Marysville and back.

Total Health Events is hosting the race, which will include for the first time a Corporate Challenge for local company participants. 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.

Total Health Events announced a partnership with USO Northwest and Operation Homefront. A portion of all race fees will be donated. 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 awards ceremony will include awards and 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 on the day of the race.

The Heroes Half is a project of Snohomish County Sports Commission and Total Health Events.  If you have questions pertaining to the race or 2013 sponsorship opportunities, please contact Lynne Hoskins at 206-499-1903 or info@totalhealthevents.com.
