The Salute to Veterans Run (S2VR) Run/Walk has become a Jacksonville time honored tradition and is the longest running Veterans Day 5K in Jacksonville with this being the 11th year. What makes this event special is the recent arrival of the Jacksonville Naval Museum; the historic World War II built destroyer, the USS ORLECK!

The 5K will take place at the pier of the USS Orleck and will take runners through scenic downtown Jacksonville. The race will kick off by paying tribute to each service by displaying the service flag and playing the service song allowing military service-members and Veteran’s to sing along.

We are exited to bring back the Patriotic Paws Parade which is a 1 mile run/walk with your best dressed fur baby. Prizes will be awarded to the top best dressed and goodies will be given to all four legged participants.

There will be post race awards for individual categories as well as team prizes awarded to Veterans and Active Military personnel making this truly a “Salute to Veterans” event!

All registered participants will receive free entry to the Jacksonville Naval Museum. For more information regarding the museum, please visit: https://www.jaxnavalmuseum.org/ Participants will have up to one year to use their bib for entry into the museum.
