FINALLY-Back at the IL VETERANS HOME! Join us for the annual Tri-State Warrior Run/Walk, 5k, 10k & HALF MARATHON!

Come join us for this wonderful family event that benefits the Tri-State Warrior Outreach, supporting unmet needs of area Veterans and their families since 2012 This year we return to our roots at the IL Veteran's Home in Quincy IL.

The 1 Mile Walk, 5k , 10k and Half Marathon start and end on the historic grounds of the IL Veterans Home, built in 1886. Participants will see extraordinary architecture, peaceful woods, the Deer Park, US Military memorials and go past the inspirational Avenue of Flags. The 5k, 10K and Half Marathon challenges runners along hills through Sunset Cemetery and the Medal of Honor Memorial then to the end of the Cedar Creek Trail before looping back around the IL Veteran's Home grounds to finish back at the Start/Finish line behind the Administration building. Our traditional dog tag-style medals are given to all event finishers.

RETURNING THIS YEAR! VIRTUAL 5K, 10K & Half Marathon OPTIONS-virtual submissions may begin at 6am through 11:30pm 10/29/23 for those unable to make it on race Day. Virtual runners will get a shirt and medal if registered by 10/20/23.

There will be chip timing for the event but be advised that the 5k, 10k & Half Marathon routes cross RR tracks at the IL Veterans Home so there is a good chance you might have an unexpected break should a train come through. See all running routes and our 1 mile walk on our Facebook pages for the Tri-State Warrior Outreach and Tri State Warrior Run.

No matter what the temperature happens to be, it's always a beautiful day to run at Mays Park and the historic IL Vet's Home-the oldest in the U.S. and worth the visit!
