Are you looking for a new, fresh and interesting challenge? Then I invite you to join us in theRUN FOR THE HEROES – 260 MILE RUN ACROSS GEORGIA and RELAY from May 25th to May 26th, Memorial Day Weekend. Join us for a 260 mile team relay race. The relay is a 2 day adventure across the countryside of southern Georgia. You and up to seven of your friends will have a great time running and navigating through this unique relay running adventure.
A hardy test for ultra runners of any level, the RUN FOR THE HEROES - RUN ACROSS GEORGIA starts on Fort Stewart, Georgia and transitions thru the coastal plains of middle Georgia at the end of the rolling hills of the Appalachians. The route is a gentle sloping uphill run through the backroads of Georgia and onto Fort Benning, past the National Infantry Museum and finishing in Columbus. Make no mistake: this will be a tough test for any endurance athlete. This race was created because most of us were born free, free to follow our heart, and free to do as we please. How and why this freedom has happened is taken for granted by many. This freedom is the result of sacrifices made by many men and women who have served in the military of which we have an infinite debt. All of us, including myself, invest our time and money in activities and products in order to reward ourselves or make ourselves feel better. The House of Heroes provides assistance to our military veterans and public safety and/or their spouses by making repairs, improvements and maintenance to their homes at no charge to them. Talk about a great way to make yourself and others feel better, volunteer or donate to this worthy cause. Helping those who have helped us will provide a warmth inside of you of which nothing money can buy or activities can provide. We encourage all who participate in this event to promote and fundraise for the House of Heroes and our Veterans. Please join me in using our love of running to help this worthy cause.
