**** 2022 Race Update ***** Unfortunately, due to several unforeseen circumstances this summer, we've made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person 5k and fun run this year. The 2022 Virtual Race will still go on as planned, however, and registration is currently open. We hope to see you again in person in 2023!


How does a Virtual 5k work? Pledge to run/walk/fly at least 1 mile the weekend of October 9-10. We'll send you ALL your race gear so you'll be ready to soar with us in spirit. Gunning for first? Record your 5k (3.14 miles) with GPS through a running app (Strava, MapMyRun, RunKeeper, Nike, etc.) and send us your results! Top Finishers will get a prize. 

Superhero costumes are encouraged, and prizes will be given out for the most creative! We want to see superheroes of all shapes, sizes, and strengths embody Kevin's superhuman spirit, so bring on your capes, masks, and supernatural tricks. 

All proceeds go directly to the SuperHERO Foundation in Kevin's honor to help others fighting a superheroic battle against mental illness and addiction.

Add A Name: Tree Memorial

Are you running for someone?

In honor of all those who have passed away or are still fighting against the effects of mental illness and addiction, we are dedicating several trees with the Maryland Forest Service. Addiction and mental illness are often lonely battles for those suffering and their loved ones. We hope these trees will serve as a living tribute to offer moments of peace, strength, and serenity in the face of heroic fights.

If you'd like to add a name to be memorialized, honored, or to send out hope for their recovery, contact us directly or use this form to submit.

All submissions will be anonymous, unless you note otherwise. You do not need to make a donation or be present at the race to submit a name to be included.
