Veterans Day
This race is dedicated to honor all the men and women of our military past and present. The major objective is to have large enthusiastic crowd support along the course.

Korean war hero, Fred McGee, will be our distinguished guest of honor. Paralyzed vets will participate in the race in wheel chairs and hand cycles. The army is donating a Humvee for use in the race.

  • All military personnel and veterans will have their entry fee waived. Please fill out the entry form and include branch of service, past or present.

  • Military personnel and veterans will receive red, white, and blue race numbers to distinguish them from the other participants, a free banquet entry/meal, and t-shirt.

  • All local reserve units have been contacted and have offered their full support and participation.

  • All monies received over and above race expenses will be donated to Paralyzed Veterans of America. As of May 1, 2011, the race will have been responsible for $22,000 in donations to PVA.
