About the Race

In January of 2016 over 150 participants gathered to support the Victor Dew Veterans Endowment Fund to support Jessup veterans and Gold Star Family students graduating debt free. Our numbers have grown with each race, surpassing 350 participants last year! Through community support, we have raised over $70,000 to support our veterans pursuing their education. Your partnership with us again for our 4th annual Veterans Honor Run will allow Jessup to alleviate the cost of education for our veteran and Gold Star Family students. Please join us as we run to raise awareness for this important cause!

Children 12 and under are free to join in the fun. Please note how many children will be joining you, if any, and note that all children 12 and under will not be receiving a t-shirt or race timing bib. If you would like to purchase an adult sized t-shirt for them, please contact Kierstin Wilson, klwilson@jessup.edu

Timing Chips

For those who have registered to receive a timing bib, the racing bib will be given during check-in and attached using safety pins to the front of your t-shirt. Official results and running times will be posted after the race on our Veterans Honor Run website, as well as emailed to all participants the week after the race.

Day of Race

For your convenience, we have listed the following times to come and pick up your race packet a few days before the race to receive your t-shirt and race timing bib, if purchased. There will be a station set up at the top of the ramp with signs to point you in the right direction. If you are unable to pick up your racing packet during one of these times, check-in will be open as early as 7:30 am the morning of the race.

The Course

This year, the Jessup Veterans Honor Run will feature an all-paved trail that stretches out to 3.17 miles, just a tad over the standard 5K. It is suitable for both runners and walkers. Runners will begin at the center of Jessup’s modernized campus, head north on University Avenue, loop back around the edge of Jessup Lake, before heading south toward Sunset Blvd, and finally back up towards campus. K-Love & Air 1 will be there to energize the crowd with positive, encouraging music, and we encourage families to come out and join the fun.
