Hero’s Bridge 5-k March 28 will honor Vietnam veterans

Hero’s Bridge will host its second annual Vietnam Veteran’s Day 5-k in Remington on Saturday, March 28.

A community nonprofit organization dedicated to serving elderly veterans 65 and older, Hero’s Bridge offers a range of free programs to those who served and their families.

On race day, registration for runners will open at 8:30 a.m. at Flatbeds and Tailfins, at 300 E. Main St. in Remington.

Participants also may register in advance at www.herosbridge.org at RunSignUp.com

The entry fee is $30.

Runners will line up between Grove’s Hardware and Remington Drug to start the 10 a.m. race through “Thunder Alley,” a corridor of motorcycles.

The course honors Remington World War II combat veteran Tech. Sgt. Harold J. Davis, who enlisted in the Army on Nov. 13, 1941. During his service in Europe, Sgt. Davis served as platoon sergeant and fought in Operation Torch, Crucifix Hill, Omaha Beach and the Battle of the Bulge. In each battle, he was wounded, received care and immediately returned to battle. Runners will cross the bridge just east of town named in his honor.

Pre-race events, starting at 9:45 a.m. will feature a “Welcome Home” prayer by U.S. Air Force Veteran Pastor Hurley Short, the National Anthem by Army veteran Ben Rollins and a Flying Circus Airshow flyover.

Post-race activities will include a 50/50 and general raffle and award presentations.

This event is for runners, walkers, kids, furry friends, honored veterans and their families. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.

Medals will be given to the first 300 participants as they cross the finish line.

Hero’s Bridge also will present these awards:

• Top Gun Male and Top Gun Female for the overall fastest runners. 

• Fastest Squadron for the top team of five or more runners. 

• A special award announced at the medal ceremony.
