Since 2012, the Veterans Race presented by Destination Races and sponsored by GEICO has been honoring all who served and currently serving in our military.  Our goal is to raise $50,000 towards local veteran organizations support services. This year, we are proud to host the race with Veterans One-Stop Center and Buffalo Naval Park.  Proceeds will benefit these two groups to PRESERVE. PROTECT. and HONOR all who served.  

The 5K & 10K race is open to all, civilian or military.  Virtual option available, use the "Deployed" category.
