Put on your running shoes and join people from across the region as they run to remember those who have given their lives for our country.

The Red Dirt Run of Honor is a 5K/half-marathon held at Enid Woodring Regional Airport, located east of Enid. The airport also is the location of the Woodring Wall of Honor and Veterans Park. The wall is a tribute to past, present and future veterans of the United States military. A section of the wall honors Oklahoma’s fallen heroes.

This Saturday’s run will be held at 7 a.m. Participants may run either a 5K, which is about 3.1 miles, or a half-marathon, about 13.1 miles.

Online registration is closed, but you can still register at Wheat Capitol Running Co., 102 W. Randolph, or at Woodring, the morning of the race. Cost is $30 for the 5K and $75 for the half-marathon. Registration the morning of the race will begin at 6 a.m.

Awards will be handed out at the end of the race, and a breakfast/brunch will be available following the race, as well.

Money raised from the event will go toward the Woodring Wall of Honor Vietnam Memorial Wall and Educational Center.
