On Memorial Day, run in honor of all veterans who, in service to our nation, have made the ultimate sacrifice. This is a fun, exciting run for all abilities and ages.

Turn out on Veterans Day for this fun race organized by the Adult Learner and Veteran Services office.

How to get there

From Overland Trail, please take Dixon Canyon Road to the south side of Hughes Stadium and go in the south entrance (gate 2). Someone will be there to direct you to parking.

The 5K starts on Dixon Canyon Road and proceeds to Spring Canyon Park.

Race goal

Our goal for the race is to raise awareness of the ultimate sacrifice our service members have made to ensure our freedoms and to engage community members in an enjoyable event associated with the Northern Colorado Veterans Plaza*, by providing a fun, exciting and active run for all abilities and ages.

All proceeds collected through the entry fee for the run or from sponsorships will go toward:

  • Student Veteran Textbook Awards
  • Student Veteran of the Year Award

Sponsored by Adult Learner and Veteran Services. ALVS supports the transition, education, leadership and involvement of adult learners and student veterans to strengthen academic achievement and, ultimately, graduate from Colorado State University. As the founder of SALUTE Veterans National Honor Society, ALVS is the host of the national headquarters.  

The Veterans Plaza

The Veterans Plaza of Northern Colorado is located at Spring Canyon Community Park in Fort Collins, Colorado, on three acres of land close to the main entrance.

This visionary plaza incorporates paved paths, native rock, shade trees, and a stage for celebrating the liberties and freedoms that have been safeguarded by generations of American service members.
