You’ve trained and raised funds, and now the big day has finally arrived! Don’t miss a moment of the fun. Event Registration/Check-In opens at 7:30 AM. All participants should check in at Registration upon arrival. Please allow enough time if you are a Runner to get your timing bib for kick off at 8:00 AM.
Registered RUNNERS should arrive by 7:30 AM to check-in or get registered, for the 8:00 AM RUN start, a timed 5K out/back on MLK Blvd through the Cultural Gardens.
The 1-Mile leisure WALK route begins at 9:00 AM around Wade Oval (3x loop on all purpose trail around the Oval). Registered Walkers can partake in the Walk throughout the morning at your own pace.
You will also want to explore our passport tents and get stamps for your LUNG FORCE Action Passport.
LUNG FORCE Run/Walks are a great time to meet other people battling lung disease, which is why participants who have a personal connection are encouraged to identify themselves at registration. If you are comfortable, you will be asked to join as a new LUNG FORCE Hero and will have the opportunity to share your story.

Mission Mile Markers
Remember and honor a loved one who’s life has been affected by lung cancer or lung disease, by creating a sign that will be displayed on the run/walk path.
LUNG FORCE Heroes
Our LUNG FORCE Heroes are patients, caregivers, family, friends and co-workers of those who are impacted by lung cancer or lung disease. These brave individuals share their powerful real-life stories online and at events to help raise awareness and educate the public about what it’s like to live with lung cancer or lung disease. Everyone's story is unique, so if you're interested in becoming a LUNG FORCE Hero, please contact Catherine Widemire. We invite you to Share Your Voice and read about other people's experiences online.
