A Fund of the Luzerne Foundation
The perfect route for individual runners, walkers and families as the entire route traverses Kirby Park and a section of the Luzerne County Levee Trail, never to encounter traffic. After the turn-around point, participants will be routed along the lower section of Nesbitt Park through our "Hero Mile" as they head to the finish. The Hero Mile will be lined with representatives and vehicles from our local military and first-responders - Police, Fire and EMS - creating a unique feature for both participants and spectators and an opportunity to connect with our region's everyday heroes.
The Hometown Heroes 5K will begin at Kirby Park. This map shows accessible parking close to the start as well as the location of the pavilion where participant check-in, race-day registration and volunteer meet-up will be located.
The Hero Mile is located in Nesbitt Park and will be a great location for the spectators as this area will host a number of local heroes from regional Police, Fire and EMS teams! It's also the final stretch to the finish line and the area where awards will be given.
