Join Estrella Mountain Community College and the City of Avondale for Veterans Day Ceremony and a family-friendly 5K fun run with bootcamp-like obstacles throughout! Bootcamp stations include ammo can lifts, tire flipping and more, all concluding with an awesome grenade toss! Don't worry, they're only dummy grenades!

*We know you're a rock star and enjoy a challenge, but please don't overexert yourself. Go at your own pace. Bootcamp stations can be bypassed if desired.


All Run Registrants receive a commemorative performance t-shirt, and enjoy a FREE Warrior's Breakfast with run registration. Breakfast and fun run free for all military and veterans.

If you are unable to attend but want to sponsor a veteran, You can donate $11.11 and we will make sure the registration is given to a Veteran!

All run proceeds will directly support the Veterans Increasing Persistence Program (VIPP). This program is designed to assist veterans in financial situations that may prevent them from going to school or completing a degree.
