Colorado Veterans Project is proud to announce the 8th Annual Memorial Day Run & March, this time as a hybrid in-person or virtual event. Be a part of the LARGEST food donation event in Colorado!

In-Person Event: Sunday, May 29th, 2022 at UCHealth Park in Colorado Springs, CO

Virtual Event: May 10-31, 2022 - You can run and record your virtual race time anytime between now and May 31st at midnight. The Leaderboard will be live between May 10-31. 

The Memorial Day Run & March invites civilians, Veterans, and uniformed Military to challenge themselves in friendly competition while helping feed homeless Veterans. We have three category events to choose from 5K Run/Ruck, 10K Run/Ruck, and 30K Ruck March - You can come run our route in person or create your own route!

Fill your rucksacks or backpacks with 25 pounds of nonperishable foods and set off on a 5, 10, or 30K route. When finished, empty your bags and help us raise food to feed Colorado's homeless Veterans. If you're at the in-person event, we will take the food from you at the end. If you're participating virtually, you can drop off your donations at one of our many drop-off locations. Food drop-off locations TBD.

We have partnered with the Special Forces Foundation in order to make this event as memorable as possible.

Proceeds from your registration (and donations!) go directly to helping Colorado Veterans. We encourage you to share this page and get friends and family involved to support the cause! Thank you on behalf of Colorado Veterans Project.
