About the Race
A Heroes in Recovery 6K is a 3.728 mile race that brings together those in recovery, their loved ones, supporters of the cause and whole communities in order to break the stigma surrounding addiction and mental health conditions. It takes a heroic effort to live clean and sober each day, and a Heroes 6K celebrates that effort. The sixth kilometer separates a Heroes race from a typical 5K to symbolize the extra effort it takes to sustain recovery. The six kilometers also represent the six letters in the word HEROES. These races inspire communities to support recovery and also to live healthy, active lifestyles.
The 6K course takes you through Community Park in Louisville, CO. Participants will run/ walk a course combing park paths and surrounding roads.
Be mindful of the weather – start hydrating a minimum of two weeks prior to the event and consider carrying a personal hydration device. There will also be water stations on the course. Must be present to receive award.
