The Buckeye Chapter of the Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) presents The Purple Heart 5k. This will be another great night celebrating with military members and the community. The unique race start time of 9pm will serve as a completely new experience for many runners. This time was chosen to represent the solemnity of the Purple Heart Medal, an award only earned through being wounded in combat in defense of the United States of America. This year the race will take place at Genoa Park, downtown Columbus.

We will be honoring the Merchant Marines of WWII. They played a crucial role in WWII and a surviving Merchant Marine Soldier will be joining us at the finish line.
