Jordan's Run 5k is returning to the Hamptons on Sunday, July 30.

"Jordan's Run is a race dedicated to the memory of Lance Corporal Jordan C. Haerter of Sag Harbor. Haerter was killed in action in Ramadi, Iraq in 2008; he was 19 years old," noted Joi Jackson Perle. "The race, part of the Suffolk County Veterans Run Series, will feature a 5k run/walk, the Hampton Foodies food truck, face painting by the Salty Canvas, music and awesome swag bags."

The 5K will begin and end at Pierson High School, with registration starting at 7 a.m. Volunteers and registered runners/walkers should park on the side streets closest to Pierson High School. The race will commence at 8:30 a.m.

The run/walk will head down Jermain, crossing Route 114 onto Hempstead. Next, participants will head to Bay Street crossing the Lance Corporal Jordan Haerter Veterans' Memorial Bridge, looping right back over the bridge to West Water Street, then onto Glover. From Glover, runners and walkers will cross Main Street, head left to Oakland Avenue, and Oakland puts the runners back onto Jermain and to the finish at the High School.

Participants of Jordan's Run 5K will experience the enthusiasm of patriotic red, white, and blue cheering crowds everywhere all along the race route, and runners/walkers will have the chance to give feedback on who was the most patriotic along the way. The winner will receive a gift certificate to a local restaurant. So whether you're running or walking, or supporting participants, make sure to bring your red, white, and blue!

"Proceeds from the race benefit the Lcpl Jordan C. Haerter Scholarship Award and local veterans' organizations," added Perle.

This race helps to sustain The Lance Corporal Jordan Haerter United States Marine Honor Courage Commitment Award and Scholarship to seniors who choose to serve their country through the military or law enforcement as Jordan had planned.

The entry fee is $35 through Saturday, July 29 and $40 (cash or check only) the day of the race. The entry fee for veterans, active duty, and kids 14 and under is $25. Admission for Gold Star Family Members is free of charge. The entry fee includes a bag with goodies and an official Jordan's Run technical shirt. There will be awards for the top three males and top three females overall, as well as medals for the top three male and female finishers in different age categories (10-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60+). If you plan to run as a team or represent an organization, list that on the registration form.

Additionally, there will be an after run/walk celebration with food, music, and face painting. Be sure to stick around for the post-race raffle. Winners must be present to receive the prize.
