The 3rd Annual Heroes Half Marathon is coming back to Everett on April 28th and early registration is now open. Here’s the first of many press releases for the event…

Total Health Events is bringing the Heroes Half Marathon and 10K to the Port of Everett for the third year on April 28. New for 2013 is the 10K Corporate Challenge – who will be the fastest company in Everett? There is still time for local companies to form teams and compete in this totally fun competition. Starting and finishing in the shadow of Naval Base Puget Sound, the closed-highway course crosses over the Snohomish River wetlands, from Everett to Marysville and back. Walkers, strollers and dogs are all welcome.

The Heroes Half honors the heroes among us. We are pleased to announce our partnership with USO Northwest and Operation Homefront. A portion of all race fees will be donated. A discount is available to all Active Military, their spouses and Veterans. The Half Marathon team category is open to Active Military and First Responders, who will compete against each other for awards and prizes. The 10K Corporate Challenge is open to companies who will compete to be the fasted or the largest team.

The high-energy awards ceremony will include awards and prizes for overall and age group winners. The two-day Health and Fitness Expo will feature vendors and local sports organizations. Packet pick-up will be available Saturday April 27 and the morning of the race at the Expo. A pre-race pasta dinner will be offered hosted by Lombardi’s Italian Restaurant. The race will also include a Hero’s Beer Garden from 9am to 11am day of race.

The Heroes Half is a project of Snohomish County Sports Commission and Total Health Events. If you have questions pertaining to the race or 2013 sponsorship opportunities, please contact Lynne Hoskins, Total Health Events, at 206.499.1903.
