The 2019 Kevin Stoddard Superhero 5k & Fun Run is an USTAF sanctioned event that will be held on Sunday, October 13, 2019 at the beautiful Wheaton Regional Park. View a map of the course here.
We encourage all types of runners and walkers: avid runners, joggers and walkers to participate.
Superhero costumes are encouraged! We want to see superheroes of all shapes, sizes, and strengths embody Kevin's superhuman spirit, so bring on your capes, masks, and supernatural tricks. We'll be giving out small prizes for best superhero costume and spirit, so plan accordingly!

2019 Superhero Tree Dedication
Are you running for someone?
In honor of all those who have passed away or are still fighting against the effects of mental illness and addiction, we are dedicating several trees with the Maryland Forest Service.
Addiction and mental illness are often lonely battles for those suffering and their loved ones. We hope these trees will serve as a living tribute to offer moments of peace, strength, and serenity in the face of heroic fights.
All submissions will be anonymous, unless you note otherwise. You do not need to make a donation or be present at the race to submit a name to be included.
