Register TODAY and help local HEROES!  The Heroes' Challenge is a Race and Fundraiser for local military and first responder Heroes and their families.  100% of the proceeds and donations go directly to supporting Heroes' and their families when "Right Now" assistance is needed!

Usually The Heroes' Challenge Race includes 3 Walk/Run distances: a 10K, 5K, 1K, with one general start time.   The course is on the river dike, so it's a zero-elevation, in-out course, along the beautiful Columbia River, with majestic Mt. Hood standing sentinel on the horizon, as you travel eastward. Opening Ceremony begins at 9:00am....      but for COVID 19 you are invited to proudly wear your Dog-tag (all races) and t-shirt (not part of 1K packet/$5 registration) and walk/run any day, any where by the end of Patriots' Day (September 11, 2020). Then come back, post your picture on our Facebook page and encourage more people to participate in The Heroes' Challenge!

Thank you for having the Backs of Heroes!  So register Today and have the Backs of local military and first responders and their families, who need us to have their backs in times of need!

Register NOW and order your official race T-shirt!  You can register on-line until 11:59pm on Patriots Day (9/11/2020).

Next year for 2021  Event Schedule... Day of registration opens at 8am.  Opening Ceremony begins at 9am, ALL RUNS WILL START immediately afterwards. The Awards Ceremony will begin at 10:30am.  A Patriot's $5 Pancake breakfast will be held from 8am to 11:30am, followed by a Children's Parade at noon.  11 to 3pm will be food vendors, live music, a variety of craftsman booths and festivities, plus a beer garden!

Have the Backs of local Heroes and take "The Heroes' Challenge" by helping raise funds to support our local Heroes and their families in Southwest Washington.  Race proceeds go directly to supporting local Heroes, so remember to register, then make and get pledges (have checks made out to BackaHero.Today) and support America's Heroes... then ask all of your friends and family to register, get pledges and register to  race with you!
