The annual Flag Day 5k Race and 1k Kids’ Fun Run honoring our Armed Forces has been held for 14 years. Now in partnership with the Boy Scouts of America, Alamo Area Council and the Scout Strong initiative to promote a healthy, active lifestyle for the Scouts, families, and communities we serve. All proceeds from the Scout Strong Patriot Run will benefit the programs of the Alamo Area Council.
The Scout Strong Patriot Run, Saturday, June 13 at McGimsey Scout Park, is a 5k open to competitive runners as well as joggers, walkers, families, and teams. The cost is $25 per person, which includes a t-shirt. After June 1, the cost is $30, but preferred t-shirt sizes are not guaranteed. Each participant will be equipped with a race number and chip timer. Awards will be provided to the overall male/female runners and top three finishers by age bracket.
The 1k Kids’ Fun Run is free and open to all children ages 6 and under. Registration is encouraged, especially if interested in purchasing a t-shirt for $12. Each participant will receive a mini American Flag.
