About

The Pooler Run for Heroes is back for 2022! The one-mile course will begin at the Pooler Parks and Recreation Department, finishing at West Chatham Middle School. 

Registration is $35 for all participants, however Families of First Responders may register for the Memory Walk here.  All proceeds from the race will go to assist the 200 Club in fulfilling its mission to assist families of first responders who die or suffer critical injuries in the line of duty. 

Runners and walkers of all fitness levels are invited to participate in the unique event, which will feature four heats for all ages and abilities, including family and age group divisions, followed by a “Memory Walk” for the families of fallen heroes to walk the mile in memory of their loved one. 

The last run of the morning will be the “Heroes Heat,” which is open to all first responders and military in full gear or not. However, full 30-pound or over gear is required to compete for the “Full Gear All Out Flag!” 

Immediately following the Heroes Heat, attendees can enjoy complimentary food and beverages while viewing the many fascinating public safety vehicles on display.
