5K RUN WITH YOUR DOG
We are incorporating a parallel 'lane' for those that wish to bring their leashed K9 friend for fun at the airport. Dogs are encouraged to participate in the run as long as they are leashed at all times, current on rabies and distemper vaccines, and have excellent temperament with other dogs and children. Price is $30.
LUNCH WITH THE WARRIORS
From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., guests can enjoy all events and displays on the race site they encourage runners and enjoy the DJ and live band. Price is $10 and includes lunch and water.
VIRTUAL RACE (5K or 10K)
Our fourth year offering a virtual run as a way for you and your group to still participate in these trying times. A virtual run is done on your own time and pace with the ability to submit your results online after completion. This event will have its own award category, male/female, overall and 1st place for each age group will be awarded. Also, if you wish to receive your shirt and swag bag, you will still need to pick up at a physical location, as shipping isn't a viable option at this time. Locations and times will be announced soon. You can text or email your times into the results; you will be sent an email on how to do that when you register. Your results will be included in a report of all the virtual runners. Race fee is $30.
For all races, registration ends May 20 at 8:50am EDT. To register or sponsor the 9th Annual Race for the Warrior, visit raceforthewarrior.org
