Description

Love running for a cause or just because you are able? Then YOU  DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS ONE!

Come out and join the National Guard as we run in remembrance of the 13 Rough Riders killed in action during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.  This 5K will be a run/walk/ruck with 13 push-ups once you cross the finish, if you are able.

We look forward to strengthening/rebuilding our relationship with our community while running (or walking) for a cause.

Money raised will go to the 1-108th Unit Fund to be used for Morale, Welfare, and Recreation events for our Soldiers and their families. Money will also go towards repairs and maintenance to the Rough Rider Memorial Wall at 108th Headquarters in Calhoun.
