A day to race, relax and remember. The Patriot Day 5K Run-Walk-Ruck will commemorate 20 years since 9/11. This student-organized event will partner with the community and local businesses to raise donations for the Tunnel to Towers Foundation. The event will begin at 8:40am with an opening ceremony featuring the Alabama A&M ROTC color guard and local country music artist and Army veteran Brandon Morris. Post-race activities will include music, food, and a free snow cone from IceWorks Shaved Ice. We will have something for everybody!
Every 5K participant will receive a "swag bag" complete with a free t-shirt, race number bib, and promotional items from our sponsors. Medals will be awarded to the top 3 male and top 3 female runners for the 5k. In addition, the top ruck finisher will also receive a medal.
Recommended ruck weight: Male: 35lbs Female: 20lbs
Your support will impact our local fire and rescue teams and honor those who lost their lives on 9/11. Bring your family and friends along to enjoy the experience and support your nation's heroes!
