Join us the morning of Sunday, October 9, 2022 in Silver Spring, MD for a superhero 5k and fun run in memory of Kevin Stoddard. All proceeds go directly to the SuperHERO Foundation in Kevin’s honor to help others fighting a superheroic battle against mental illness and addiction. Challenge yourself and go for gold in the 5k! Or break out your best cape and channel your favorite superhero in the 1-mile fun run. Want to join the fun and donate to a good cause, but can’t be there in person? Consider signing up for our virtual race and soar with us in spirit.
Our 5k is a chip-timed race that winds through the beautiful Wheaton Regional Park and Brookside Gardens. We encourage all types of runners and walkers: avid runners, joggers and walkers to participate. Prizes will be awarded to top 3 men and women overall, as well as medals for top men & women in the following age groups: 19 and under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+.
Superhero costumes are encouraged, and prizes will be given out for the most creative! We want to see superheroes of all shapes, sizes, and strengths embody Kevin’s superhuman spirit, so bring on your capes, masks, and supernatural tricks.
