Semper K9 Hero Hike: Where Every Step Honor’s Your Hero!

Step Into Heroic Strides: Conquer a 5K Run or Embark on a Mile Hike in Honor of Your Hero!


Get ready for an adventure at Semper K9’s 6th Annual Hero Hike 5K/1 Mile on May 11, 2024! Our annual event occurs in the breathtaking Semper Fidelis Park at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, Virginia.

Picture yourself conquering the scenic routes, pushing your limits, and embracing the thrill of the professionally timed race. This isn’t just a run – it’s a celebration of heroes, a tribute to courage, and an unforgettable experience.

For adults and young adventurers aged 13 and older, seize the opportunity with our Early Bird Registration at just $35! And the perks? A high-quality t-shirt to wear with pride and a finisher’s medal that’s a testament to your triumph.

But that’s not all. The younger athletes, aged 12 and under, can join the excitement for FREE! They’ll not only earn a participation medal but also have the chance to snag a youth-size official race t-shirt for $20.

What sets this event apart? It’s not just a race; it’s a chance to make a difference. Register with the $35 Early Bird fee, then channel your inner hero by fundraising for additional prizes. The top 3 fundraisers will etch their hero’s legacy with a Brick of Honor at Camp Semper K9, receiving a coveted replica brick as a symbol of their remarkable achievement.

And for those unable to lace up their running shoes, fear not! You can still make a lasting impact by having your hero’s name grace our esteemed Wall of Heroes.
