The Fallen 15 and Columbus Chapter 500 of the Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) have joined together again this year for the 4th annual Purple Heart 5k. This will be another great night celebrating with military and the community.
The unique race start time of 9pm will serve as a completely new experience for many runners. This time was chosen to represent the solemnity of the Purple Heart Medal, an award only earned through being wounded in combat in defense of the United States of America. The race will end at Arch Park near Nationwide Blvd. and West Spring St. After the race, we invite all runners to enjoy one another’s company in a few of the pubs and bars located within the Arena District. Our goal is for everyone to have a genuinely meaningful time and to be proud of the cause they are supporting.
