About the Event

The 13th annual FDIC Courage and Valor 5k will take place Thursday, August 5th at 6:00pm at the White River State Park, located just a short walk from the Indianapolis convention center. This event is part of the FDIC national convention (Fire Department Instructor's Conference). All proceeds go to help sponsor the Ray Downey Courage and Valor Award, which commemorates the life and career achievements of firefighters who risk their lives for the citizens whom they serve. This award is presented each year to one outstanding firefighter at the FDIC convention.

This event is open to everyone, and offers a scenic, flat and fast course that winds around the beautiful Indianapolis Canal. Participants are provided with an absolutely safe (no traffic crossings) opportunity to enjoy a brisk fun run or walk with their fellow firefighters. Participants will have the option to be timed or un-timed.

Timing and management of the run is going to be handled by Tuxedo Brothers Event Management. The Courage & Valor 5k is your chance to get out and show your commitment to good health and well-being. FDIC is where leaders go to train. If we say we are leading the fire service, then we need to lead by example.

The run will conclude with a short presentation where the awards will be given out near the finish line to the top finishers of the event.
