Run to the Wall
September 14th, 2019

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.

10K Run Event

Image See the story below regarding changes to our half-marathon event. In addition to changing our half-marathon, we have moved our 10K route to follow along a similar route (it is still and out-and-back course), allowing us to better serve participants of both the 10K and Half-Marathon. While we are still working on logistics, we are trying to place a porta-john on the 10K & Half Marathon routes near the 10K turn around. More details to come.
