Sign up for the Field of Heroes 5K Run/Walk for an active and alternative way to honor your heroes in a unique and breathtaking setting. This flat course is on paved recreation paths, against one of the most memorable backdrops you’ll ever experience.

The Field of Heroes has been a Memorial Day weekend tradition in central Ohio for the past 15 years, providing an opportunity for our community to bring back the significance of the holiday and to honor their personal heroes. Set in a field of 3,000 full-sized American flags, visitors are able to dedicate flags to their personal heroes and join other community members in this deeply moving event. This year's theme will honor Ohio Aviation Heroes, and will include a Saturday evening concert and other programs throughout the weekend.

The Field of Heroes 5K starts near the Veteran's Memorial at the Westerville Sports Complex (Cleveland Avenue and County Line Rd.), follow paths inside city of Westerville Parks, cuts through Westerville fire station 111, and then finishes through the full-sized American flags that make up the main Field of Heroes display. Participants receive a race shirt, custom bib and a beautiful commemorative challenge coin.
