2017 Run Forrest Run!
We are excited to host the 2nd annual Murrieta Run Forrest Run 5K in honor of our Veterans. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Gary Sinise Foundation. We raised over $9000 last year for the Gary Sinise Foundation and I would love to contribute even more this year with your help.
The race will be held in conjunction with the Opening Day for the Murrieta Field of Honor where we honor our Active Duty, Veterans and First Responders.
We listened to your feedback and some improvements for this year will be a technical T-shirt which will be included with your race entry as will the limited edition dog tag finisher’s medals. Every year the shirts & medals will be different colors (blue last year, red this year, white next year) so be sure to collect all of them!
Packet pickup will be from 7:30 am to 9:00 am on Saturday November 4th, 2017. There will be plenty of parking onsite at Murrieta Town Square and the race itself will begin at 9:00 am.
The course is an out and back mostly flat course starting at the Murrieta Town Square Park. The run/walk will be timed with awards to the top 3 males and females.
2018 registration will be announced early next summer. Track us to receive an email / text alert when registration opens!
We will have the Phoenix Patriot Band back again this year rocking out your favorite tunes!
The Women’s Council of Realtors SRC will be hosting a Military Services Expo with over 30 businesses and organizations that help Active Duty and Veterans. They will also be handing out free hot dogs for lunch!
Paul Mitchell the School Temecula will be offering haircuts and styling with proceeds benefiting the Gary Sinise Foundation.
Stay after the race and tour the field and explore features of the Murrieta Field of Honor like the California Medal of Honor winners. We have a section where we honor all of the local service men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice since 9/11/2001. There will be Chalk Art with patriotic themes and lots more.
So please pass along the word that you should come for the run, but stay around after the race for the fun. The Opening ceremonies for the Murrieta Field of Honor will take place on that Saturday.
Every racer will receive a limited edition dog-tag type finisher medal!
Every racer will receive a limited edition T-shirt!
2017 Race Results!
2016 Race Results!
We would like to thank all the runners for their support because the money raised directly benefits the Gary Sinise Foundation.
We had 2 GSF ambassadors at the race. Both were triple amputees who received adaptive houses. On this Veterans Day, it is a time to remember the sacrifices of all who have served.
We look forward to doing it again next year!
