The 4th annual Granite City 5K Run/Walk for Veterans is an event to celebrate the service of our men and women of the armed forces and raise awareness of the many challenges veterans endure. This event is presented by the Barre Partnership in partnership with the American Legion Barre Post 10 and 100% of the profits of this event will go to The Veterans’ Place, in support of their services for our most vulnerable veterans.
The race participants can register online or on race day. Registration is at the American Legion between 7:15-7:45 AM with the race start in the parking lot of Capstone Community Action adjacent to the Legion at 8:00AM. The race route makes its way from Capstone to the Barre Bike Path and is a down and back event. Race participants will receive a long sleeve athletic shirt, post race snacks, and medals will be given out to the top three times in a number of age brackets.
