This is sure to be a great event with over 250 Active Duty Service Members in attendance, as well as our other local hero's. There will be fun for the whole family, even if running isn't your thing! There will be a Pre-Race Yoga Warm-up at 6:15am, Race Begins at 7am, lead by our very own local 365th Army Engineer Company, and a Post-Race After Party. There will even be puppies and food trucks... so REGISTER TODAY!
