Love running for a cause or just because you are able? Then YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS ONE!
Come out and join the Georgia Army National Guard as we run in remembrance of the 14 Rough Riders killed in action during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. This 5K will be a run/walk/ruck with 14 push-ups once you cross the finish; push-ups are not required.
We'll be set up with Vendors & some cool military vehicles to check out so you & your kiddos don't want to miss this! There may even be some Fire & Police vehicles too! We look forward to strengthening/rebuilding our relationship with our community while running (or walking) for a cause.
This will be a flat & fast course through the park with some awesome, one-of-a kind awards only available at the Rough Rider Memorial 5K!
Money raised will go to the Rough Rider Association, which funds the 108th Morale, Welfare, and Recreation events for our Soldiers and their families.
Race shirts guaranteed through 9/5, afterwards shirts will be available while supplies last.
Money raised will go to the 1-108th Unit Fund to be used for Morale, Welfare, and Recreation events for our Soldiers and their families. Money will also go towards repairs and maintenance to the Rough Rider Memorial Wall at 108th Headquarters in Calhoun.
