Fort Riley will hosts the Fallen Hero Run this weekend. The run is to honor and remember military members who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice in support and defense of the United States.
The run, which starts and ends at Riley’s Conference Center, is this Saturday morning at 9. It is open to the public. Registration starts at 8.
There are two- and four-mile courses around Fort Riley’s historic main post. The event is not timed. Pets and strollers are permitted.
A display of decorated combat boots will be placed along the run route to commemorate those who have died while serving the country.
