SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — The 25th Infantry Division Equal Opportunity Office and 25th Special Troops Battalion will host an Asian-Pacific American 5K Run/Walk and a one-mile Keiki Fun Run, May 15, 6:30-7:30 a.m., through Wheeler Army Airfield.

Residents, friends and family members are encouraged to line the run route, show their support and provide words of encouragement and moral support for runners. 

May is Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month, and the run commemorates the contributions of Asian-Pacific Americans and promotes esprit de corps for Soldiers and families.

The run will start about 200 meters from Kawamura Gate at WAAF, run down Bunker Place onto Airdrome Road. About 1.5 miles from the starting point, runners will turn around and race back to the finish line, back at the starting point.  

Personnel living and working on Wheeler will need to be aware of the planned route and adjust travel accordingly. 

Limited parking will be available on WAAF, but additional parking is available at Schofield Barracks. 

Registration is free for all who wish to run and is open to civilians, family members and military runners, walkers and strollers. The first 150 runners to register for the 5K will receive a free T-shirt. Entries are accepted up until the day of race.  

Call 655-0053, or e-mail questions to eo.25id@yahoo.com.
