Register for the 2019 Run to the Wall

The Participation Tee

Lest we Forget!  Run to the Wall  was established to memorialize all military service personnel, past, present, and future.  Past participants told us, we have a challenging “hilly” course but that they look forward to coming back year after year.   No matter what your athletic ability we are confident that you will be able to complete the course.   Run to the Wall is a race that brings the community together to commemorate all service members especially those who gave the most precious gift, one that we can never repay ~ their life.

You must be registared by July 19 to ensure getting a prarticipation tee.
