A Race with a Purpose

The Austin Police Department and Special Olympics Texas invite you to the Run with the Heroes 5K. Runners of all levels – beginners through advanced – are invited to participate and compete. This event features both competition and fun for all skill levels; it's a day of community and enjoyment with friends and family! Each year, the race honors all fallen heroes and their families from the Fire, EMS, and Police first responder agencies. We also honor those who serve and protect our communities every day.

This year's honoree is
Kenneth Copeland
from the San Marcos Police Department
