Each mile of the Run is dedicated to a NJ Hero and the Core Run Team will stop at every Hero Marker (every mile) and present an American Flag and a personal biographical card to the waiting family members, friends and comrades. The intent is to create a 186+ mile long memorial trail through New Jersey.
The end of each mile during the run is designated as a Hero Marker and each is assigned to one of our New Jersey Heroes. A couple of days prior to the actual run each of these Hero Marker locations will be marked by painting that particular number at the designated spot on the road shoulder and we will also place a laminated Marker card containing the HM number, name, and date and time as well.
