SERIOUS RUNNERS ONLY PLEASE - We are assembling a small group (25 maximum), of active or former military personnel or dedicated athletes to comprise a core team of runners committed to a 3-day 160 mile tribute run from Milledgeville to Ft Benning. Run will begin at 7:00am from the Georgia Veterans Memorial Cemetery and conclude at the Global War on Terrorism Memorial at Ft Benning. 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 1 mile for every Georgia 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, briefly greeting family, friends and comrades who may be waiting nearby. Stopping no longer than 90 seconds each.
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 3-day period. We are not looking for quantity of runners but a solid team dedicated to the remembrance of those who gave their lives and their families.
We also need runners willing to run miles/legs of the route on a drop-in basis. You can join us for a few miles, a few hours or whatever time your schedule allows. You will still need to keep an 8-9 minute mile pace.
If you are interested in becoming a part of our core team or be a drop-in runner contact us at,
