Return of MHRRC Run for Heroes at new location!

Wednesday, March 21, 2018

The popular Run for Heroes 5K and 10K run/ruck is back! It will take place on June 9 on the Dutchess Rail Trail starting from Gold's Gym. 

This race honors local heroes: first responders and military service members. As such, there is both a run and a ruck. With a ruck, participants carry a back pack with their choice of weight. We will honor local heroes who passed away and their families.

Press Conference

There will be a press conference on Wednesday, March 28 at 10:30 am to annunce this race. It is a Gold's Gym on the rail trail. All MHRRC members are invited to attend - plan to get there about 10:15.
