Brookshire Grocery Co. will host its annual Heroes Run on Oct. 21 at the Brookshire Grocery Arena at 2000 Brookshire Arena Dr. in Bossier City, Louisiana.
The Heroes Run features a half marathon and 5K race, along with a kids 1K for ages 12 and under. The half-marathon course goes along the Red River down the Arthur Ray Teague Running Trail.
Every race participant will receive a finisher’s medal, finisher’s apparel item, free high-resolution race photos and entry into the post-race party featuring free samples, vendors, kids’ area and live music. A prize purse totaling more than $22,000 will be awarded to top finishers within several categories for the half marathon and 5K.
Brookshire’s Heroes Run was established to give back to local military heroes and first responders and provide a race experience in the Bossier City area. One hundred percent of runner revenue goes to organizations that support local heroes. Benefitting organizations include the Shreveport and Bossier City police and fire departments, Barksdale Air Force Base, Team Red, White and Blue and Every Warrior.
