The “Run with the Heroes” 5K is a race with a purpose... more than just winning! It was designed to bring communities together with first responders, to honor fallen heroes of emergency services and to show support for their families. Emergency responders, which include Police, Fire and EMS, are one large family and each year “Run with the Heroes” honors all our fallen brothers and sisters. This year we will honor EMS Captain Randy Trinkle who died on December 1, 2012. He leaves behind a wife and two children.

Each year, Austin Police officers team with Special Olympics Texas athletes to run the “Flame of Hope” to the Opening Ceremonies of Special Olympics Games. In the spirit of the partnership with the Law Enforcement Torch Run, “Run with the Heroes” is honored to donate its proceeds to Special Olympics Texas athletes and their goals!

Each year, the race honors all fallen heroes and their families from the Fire, EMS, and Police first responder agencies. We also honor those who serve and protect our communities every day.
