Join us in celebrating our 10th Anniversary of the
Bull Falls Brewery Never Forgotten Honor Flight 5K Run/Walk!
FORGOTTEN HONOR FLIGHT:
Our veterans are an integral part of our society. It is in
their honor that we invite you to help us support these courageous people. All
proceeds for this event will be donated to the Never Forgotten Honor Flight.
This organization is committed to fly our World War II, Korean, and Vietnam War
veterans to Washington, D. C. to view their memorials at no cost to the
veterans. The amount needed, per veteran sponsored, is $500. For more
information about Honor Flight, please see their website – http://www.neverforgottenhonorflight.org. There will
be additional opportunities to make donations throughout the afternoon. To
date, this event has attracted more than 10,000 participants the last 9 years
and has raised over $112,635.47, sending 225 area veterans! Your
generosity is greatly appreciated. Thank you! Click here if you are interested in sending someone you know

RULES OF THE
The entire race route is planned on OPEN city streets and crossings, use
caution! Please run/walk in single file, except when passing. Volunteer Race
officials will be wearing orange or yellow vests, please obey race officials
and yield to emergency vehicles. THERE ARE SOME HILLS. Approach them based upon
your experience and comfort level in running or walking. Any participant on the
course after 1:30 pm will need to finish course route on their own, as all
Event Staff will be back at the brewery enjoying the Bull Falls Bock Fest at
that time. Again, Thank you!! Click Here to view
the race map.
The BOCK BUSTER
race course is a run-only route. Although we understand
if you walk a few steps to get to the top of that first hill. We know, it's a
killer. You will follow the run/walk course out of the Start and head east
on McIntosh for 1.55 miles, turn around and come back the same way. There is a
45 mph section on the course, so keep your head up for passing vehicles! Don't
be afraid to give this route a try. It’s tough, but just think how good
the beer will taste when you’re done!
Both the 5K and Bock Buster routes will begin at 12:00 p.m. A ceremony will
begin at 11:45 that will honor our Veterans and cover important race day
announcements. Please be in the starting area prior to announcements. Course
time limit is 90 minutes.
Restroom facilities will be near the start/finish line and in the beer garden.
A water station will be located just before mile 1 and you will pass it again
after mile 2. Note: There is no water station on the BOCK BUSTER route. 5K
Route turn around street is a left turn onto Lincoln Ave. Strollers and
baby joggers are permitted and must start at the rear of the group. Dogs are
allowed on course route, provided they are on a short leash and start in the
rear of the group. Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed in the beer garden
