Heroes in Recovery 6K Run/Walk

8:00 AM
Walter E. Long Park,

The Heroes in Recovery 6K run/walk is a family-friendly community race to benefit Austin Recovery, the city’s oldest nonprofit treatment facility. Presented by Awakenings Recovery and the Foundations Recovery Network with the goal of eliminating the social stigma surrounding addiction and mental health issues, this run includes $1,500 prize purse up for grabs for competitive runners, but all levels are welcome and the race is dog friendly. All participants receive a finisher’s medal, race tank, souvenir bib, reusable bag and refreshments and entertainment post-race.┬áIt takes a heroic effort to live clean and sober each day, and a Heroes 6K celebrates that effort. The sixth kilometer separates a Heroes race from a typical 5K to symbolize the extra effort it takes to sustain recovery. The six kilometers also represent the six letters in the word HEROES.
