The Buckeye Chapter of the Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) presents The Purple Heart 5k. This will be a great night celebrating with military members and the community. The unique race start time of 9:00 PM 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 in downtown Columbus.

The Apollo 50th Anniversary of Flight and Ohio Astronauts will be honored.
