_ The 2023 Arizona Heroes Memorial 5k and 10k:
Formerly known as the Veterans and First Responders Memorial 5k/10k, the Memorial was renamed in 2022 to the ARIZONA HEROES MEMORIAL, and therefore we have updated the event name to match the Memorial for which this event supports. Due to construction at Naranja Park, the event will take place at Riverfront Park.
