ABOUT THE RACE

The Nolensville Heroes in Recovery 6K  is the original 6K event and a unique run/walk presented by Foundations Nashville, an outpatient treatment center of Foundations Recovery Network.

Foundations Recovery Network’s mission is to be the leader in evidence-based, integrated treatment for co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders through clinical services, education and research.

The Heroes in Recovery movement started because according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), 20 million people needed substance abuse treatment last year and did not receive it. About 10 million Americans did not receive needed mental healthcare. The stigma associated with substance abuse and mental health disorders creates a significant barrier to individuals and families seeking help.  It takes a heroic effort to live clean and sober each day, and a Heroes 6K celebrates that effort. The sixth kilometer separates a Heroes race from a typical 5K to symbolize the extra effort it takes to sustain recovery. The six kilometers also represent the six letters in the word HEROES. These races inspire communities to support recovery and also to live healthy, active lifestyles.

Each registered participant will receive:

  • A finisher’s medal upon crossing the finish line
  • Heroes 6K race shirt
  • Souvenir bib
  • Re-usable 6K bag

 

Join the movement. Run the race. Break the stigma!

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Is there a time limit to complete the 6K?

A 20-minute mile pace or faster is required, which is the equivalent of a steady walk. If you fall below this pace, we can no longer guarantee course support like aid stations, medical support and portable toilets. If you fall below this pace on an open road, you’ll have to move to the side of the street/onto the sidewalk and obey regular traffic laws. We’re forced to officially cut the course finish time at 1 hour and 15 minutes.

 

Can I walk the race?

Absolutely! Runners and walkers are not only welcome, but also encouraged! Our training plan will help participants of all paces prepare for race day.

 

Are strollers welcome?

Of course! Strollers are more than welcome, as long as you position yourself in the back to avoid any tangles and traffic jams.

 

Do kids run free?

Due to liability concerns, everyone must register for the event, kids included.

 

Are dogs allowed?

Sure thing! We love dogs as much, if not more, than you do! Just make sure to keep them on a leash.

 

Can I pick up a friend’s packet?

Yes! High fives for being a great friend.

 

Do I need to be present to claim my award?

Yes — all winners must be present at the award ceremony to claim their award, so make sure you stay for the fun after the race!

 

Can I register on race day?

Absolutely! You can register on-site during packet pick-up or on race day.

 

What if I can’t make it on race day?

Great news! You are welcome to switch over to a virtual participant and run the race on your own time. Just email us at [email protected] and we can get you switched over. (Please note, there may be a price difference and your credit card on file will be charged the difference.)

 

Can I get a refund after I register?

Unfortunately, we’re unable to provide refunds or facilitate registration transfers between participants. We can, however, change your on-site registration status to virtual, enabling you to still participate in the movement and run at your own leisure. If you’d like to make this change, email [email protected] and we’ll take care of it for you! (Heads up: the price difference in registration will be charged to your original credit card.)
