National Veterans Day Run Purpose

The purpose of the National Veterans Day Run is to provide a venue to thank the men and women that have served or are currently serving in our nation's military during the week of Veterans Day (November 11th). To this end, we provide discounted pricing to our Veterans and active-duty military participants as well as discounted pricing for spouses of our Veterans. Your participation also allows us to make this event available to service members worldwide for the same discounted price as those serving in the States.

We also donate a portion of the proceeds from our events to honorable military charities. Donations from prior years' events have included the Wounded Warrior Project, Folds of Honor, Operation Gratitude, Team Red White and Blue and numerous local veterans charities in the cities we have events.

ALL PARTICIPANTS Get a 2" collectible event pin

We are excited to announce that all finishers of the 2015 National Veterans Day Run will receive a collectible lapel pin.

Finisher's Medals for 11K and 5K

We believe in providing quality medals for our events and this year will be no exception! All 11K and 5K finishers will receive a medal - even those participating in our virtual run. The 5K medal is around 3 inches tall and the 11K medal is almost 4 inches tall!

Race Packets and Timing Chips

The location of race packet pickup will be announced as the event gets closer.  The National Veterans Day Run will use disposable tags that will be included with your race entry into the 11K and 5K distance race.  Instructions on how to use these will be included inside your race packet.
