The 5K Walk/Run (Honor the CA Fallen) Route
The 5K run and/or walk will start at a designated location within the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery in Dixon, CA. Participants will begin the run/walk at the 5K start point. Prior to the Run Team entering the cemetery, at the end of the 5K, walkers and runners will meet at a pre-determined location just outside the cemetery so that everyone can enter the cemetery at the same time and participate in the closing ceremonies. Closing ceremonies will be conducted inside the cemetery at the Flag Assembly Area.
