The Salute to Veterans Run (S2VR) Run/Walk has become a Jacksonville time honored tradition and longest running Veterans Day 5K in Jacksonville with this being the 8th year. The legacy of the S2VR has positioned itself as the premier event for the City of Jacksonville’s “Week of Valor.”
The 5K takes the 750+ runners along the beautiful St. Johns River and through parts of downtown Jacksonville; at the same time 500+ family, friends, and spectators are enjoying our large family oriented Race Village complete with food, drinks, bounce houses, several games and other activities. This race Salutes all Veterans with a unique start, by displaying the flags of all branches of the military services and singing a verse to each of branch service song. Additionally there will be prize drawings for all runners after the race and separate placing and team prizes awarded to Veterans and Active Military personnel making this truly a “Salute to Veterans” event!
