In addition to this year's in-person event in Kronenwetter, Run for the Fallen also includes virtual options for the 5K, 10K and 1 Mile Firefighter Challenge, that anyone can participate in, anywhere in the U.S. 

Those participating virtually will choose their own routes and can run or walk in their events any time on Race Day.


Time yourself and track your distance using your favorite running or walking app, or just enjoy an untimed stroll at your favorite pace. 

Those participating virtually will receive a virtual race kit, that includes an event tee, fallen hero honor badge and more from the Kronenwetter Fire Department, National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and our fine sponsors.
