Runner/Volunteer Registration and Waiver
Thank you for your interest in participating with us in a state Run for the Fallen to Honor and Remember our fallen military service members and their families.
Each Run will travel through a specific state over a set number of days and cover a specific number of miles. This is a relay-style run, consisting of 4 teams of 4 runners, carrying full size flags, stopping every mile at a designated Hero Marker, approximately every 9 minutes. At the Hero Marker, we will have a short ceremony (30-60 seconds) to honor the state's fallen listed on that Marker.
A typical team rotation is every 2 miles. With an average of 10-15 miles per day, per runner. Runners will be provided food and lodging. Although there is no fee to participate, each runner is expected to fund-raise a minimum amount to help offset expenses.
Please share to others you may know would be interested. You will be contacted by the responsible state director. Thank you!
