    Action News Jax anchor Letisha Bereola and News 104.5 WOKV news director Rich Jones will be at the event/

    Both the half marathon and 5K will start at 7:00 am on Bay Street, by the entrance to Metropolitan Park. Both races will finish in front of the Jacksonville Fire Museum. 

    Afterward, stay for the post-race celebration. Runners will be treated to free massages, free beer, food and other refreshments. 

    The event raises money for our local USO chapter. The funds will help local veterans and deployed soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines. All active duty, reserves, and National Guard members will receive free registration.
