SERIOUS RUNNERS ONLY PLEASE - We are assembling a small dedicated group of (25 max) Runners comprised of Active Duty, Retired Veterans and dedicated patriotic athletes to comprise a core team of runners committed to a 2-day 100 mile tribute run from Fort Carson to Fort Logan National Cemetery. Run will begin at 7:00 am from the Mountain Post Global War on Terrorism Fallen Soldiers Memorial at Fort Carson and conclude in Fort Logan National Cemetery Shelter B. The run has a specific timetable for each marker throughout each day. Runners need to be flexible, willing to run on any given day and when needed. RAIN OR SHINE.
Runners will run for every Colorado fallen military hero who died while serving during the current war on terror, stopping to salute and give tribute by name at every Hero Marker, spaced approximate 1 mile interval, briefly greeting Gold Star family members, friends and comrades of the Fallen who may be waiting nearby. Stopping no longer than 90 seconds each then carrying the tribute forward to the next Hero Marker.
Each runner must be physically capable of a consistent 8-9 minute mile for 2 mile legs. Core teams will rotate every hour over the 2-day period. We are not looking for quantity of runners but a solid team dedicated to the remembrance of those who gave their lives for our freedom and paying honor to their Gold Star Families. This route will be grueling at times due to trail winds and hilly conditions as we traverse south west Colorado and a specific pace must be kept in order to greet waiting families.
Lodging the evening of the 13th and 14th provided if need as well as meals, snacks, hydration and run shirts (1 per day) . We do not have a registration fee. We do ask each Runner to find sponsorship / fund raise to offset the cost of this event (minimum $50 per day). If you are interested in becoming a part of our core team or desiring to run any of the 100 mile distance, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out our Contact Form.
