Reminding Us How Important We Are To Each Other and Our Families
The Kevin Ebbert Memorial Trail Run is about family, community, and fitness. Kevin Ebbert was a member of the HealthSPORT family who grew up in Humboldt County. His community stretched across the country and around the world serving as a Navy SEAL until he was killed in action on November 24, 2012.
Once a year, the community gathers in Arcata’s Redwood Park and Community Forest to honor Kevin. The event provides a place for family and friends to gather and remember Kevin and for the community to come together, in fitness and in nature, in his honor. Kevin was known for setting high expectations for himself and for achieving his goals. Kevin also encouraged and pushed others to exceed their own expectations. The trail run includes a challenging 10k+ trail run with strenuous hills befitting Kevin’s memory. The 2-mile run/walk is accessible to families and offers an opportunity for quiet reflection while winding through the redwood trees. Kevin was truly at peace when he was outside; this run celebrates that peace.
