Veterans Day Run/ Walk
November 11, 2022
Downtown Porterville

The annual Veterans Day Run & Walk takes place each year on November 11 in Downtown Porterville before the Veterans Day Parade.  It features a 10K run, 5K run, 5K walk and free kids fun run.  Finish the race and stay for one of Porterville’s largest parades of the year.

The low cost pre-registration entry fee includes a bib and long-sleeved commemorative shirt that is designed special each year.  Plus, there is a discounted rate of $10 for veterans and those in active military duty.  Follow the sub menu links for more details and don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions: or (559) 791-7695.


The race is chip timed with start and finish in front of Porterville City Hall.  Medals will be awarded to the top three finishers in each age category and prizes for the top overall male and female finisher in each event.
