Heroes In Recovery 6K – San Diego

April 07, 2018 · San Diego, CA

Distance: 6K

The San Diego Heroes race is a unique 6K run/walk presented by Foundations San Diego and SoCal Recovery Centers. Heroes in Recovery has a simple mission: to eliminate the social stigma that keeps individuals with addiction and mental health issues from seeking help, to share stories of recovery for the purpose of encouragement and inspiration, and to create an engaged sober community that empowers people to get involved, give back, and live healthy, active lives. 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.

Run for your chance to win part of the $1,500 prize purse while supporting the local charity beneficiary, New Directions for Youth. We award the top four male/female overall and masters overall finishers!
