As Americans we are free! We can get up in the morning, go to work at the job we choose, go to the stores we like, or simply step out the door and go for a run/walk. We have these freedoms thanks to the women and men that make up our military. So many selfless americans have given the ultimate sacrifice so we can wake up each day and simply do as we wish. This Veterans Day, I wanted to personally execute my freedom of entrepreneurship and philanthropy the best way i know how, but hosting a race to honor those who served.
Proceeds from this race will be donated to a local chapter of a veterans service organization (TBD) to help our veterans in need.
Race Details: 10k and 5k races will be held at Lake Wilhelm, Goddard State Park on Saturday, November 11th.
FINISH MEDAL FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS!
10K Course: Starting with an out and back on the causeway (might be windy… but always pretty), the course will continue onto the paved trail around Lake Wilhelm. Upon reaching the final turn around, participants will head back to the finish line located at the marina pavilion. 10K course will have 2 water stops that you will pass 2x.
