Bootcamp stations include ammo can lifts, tire flipping and more, all concluding with an awesome dummy grenade toss! Don't worry, they're only dummy grenades!

*We know you're a rock star and enjoy a challenge, but please don't overexert yourself. Walk, run, go at your own pace. Any and all bootcamp stations can be bypassed if desired. 

BONUS! Receive a commemorative run shirt, swag bag, and enjoy a FREE Warrior's Breakfast with run registration. Breakfast and fun run free for all military and veterans. Then stick around after the run for the Kid Zone, giveaways, entertainment and more, all concluding with a Veterans Day Ceremony. 

All run proceeds will directly support Veterans Increasing Persistence Program (VIPP). This program is designed to assist veterans in financial situations that may prevent them from going to school or completing a degree.
