The following timings and locations are subject to change as final details are confirmed during the next several months. Visit Route Directions to see where each Hero will be honored.

Please check back regularly for updates and also follow us on Facebook.

Each mile of the Run is dedicated to a Virginia Hero and the Core Run Team will stop at every Hero Marker (every mile) and present an American Flag and a personal biographical card to the waiting family members, friends and comrades.  The intent is to create a 250+ mile long memorial trail through Virginia.

Each Hero Marker is placed approximately one mile apart. Some placements may not be along road conditions that are conducive to safely standing on the side of the highway. Please use wise judgement when waiting for the runners to arrive, safety for all is our number one concern.You may want to consider standing at another marker in a safer location.
