2022 Everyday Hero Run

Our 6th year! This run celebrates the Everyday Hero. In our past races, we’ve been honored to have veterans, first responders, small business owners, kids, runners of all levels, and awesome volunteers who give their time in their community. That’s what this run is all about – celebrating the Everyday Hero. So, really, it’s much more than a race!

The 6th Annual Everyday Hero is a fun, family friendly 5k Run and 1 Mile Walk dedicated to the memory of Jerome Rodio, an Oxford man whose great deeds and selfless acts helped bring together the community of Oxford, PA! More than a great citizen, Jerome was a fun, adventurous Dad & Grandpop! Run (or walk) the scenic course through beautiful Nottingham Park! Proceeds benefit the Annual Veteran’s Breakfast and the Oxford Chamber of Commerce, where Jerome was president at the time of his sudden passing in July, 2016. We’re pretty sure he’d get a kick out of this fun race, inspired by his good deeds.

Gift certificates for Age Group Winners for the 5k Run, and new for this year, EVERYONE WILL RECEIVE A MEDAL!

We’ll also have a Kids Dash for ages 9 and under (registration not necessary)!

Cool Everyday Hero TANK TOP included and guaranteed for each pre-registered participant until 8/8/22!

Who is our Everyday Hero?  That would be Jerome Rodio.  This run is inspired and dedicated to the memory of Jerome.  He moved to Oxford after serving in the Navy and a career as a Philadelphia police officer.  He opened a business along Third Street and immediately began volunteering in the Oxford community.  At the time of his death in 2016, he was President of the Oxford Area Chamber of Commerce and fully immersed in many volunteering efforts in our community.  Although Jerome came to Oxford later in his life, his impact was felt immediately.  He made our community a better place to live, work and play!  Proceeds from the run, benefit the Oxford Veterans Breakfast and Oxford Area Chamber of Commerce.  

Thank you to all who came out and supported our 5th Annual Everday Hero 5K Run!  It was great seeing old friends and meeting new ones.  Shout out to Run 856 for the continued support, our sponsors, volunteers and D’Amico Law for the great after run party at the Octoraro Tavern.  See you next year for the 6th Annual Run!
