Our inaugural event changed to protect participants and visitors against the corona virus; however, we have decided to offer a virtual race in 2020. CLICK on the link to learn more. 

MISSION

The orchestration of an annual Race4Warriors event to honor veterans who have served in the Middle East.
To provide support to our Wounded Warriors and Homeless Veterans, while educating our communities and strengthening their bonds with our veterans.

VISION

Connect education with community involvement to enhance our support of veterans who have served in the Middle East.

 
OUR EVENT IS...
4 OUR MIDDLE EAST VETERANS
4 OUR WOUNDED WARRIORS
4 OUR HOMELESS VETERANS
4 OUR COMMUNITIES
4 AMERICA

Come join us in this historic event along the scenic coastline of Delaware, our First State, to support our wounded warriors and homeless veterans.  The race will encompass four picturesque beaches. Beginning at the historic Parade Field, Cape Henlopen State Park. Participants will travel through the state park and race down the beachline, simulating marching on the desert sands of the Middle East.  The event is divided into a 5k, 10k, Half and Full Marathon Challenge.  Participants are able to choose to compete in a run, march or heavy march (15lb. pack). A "March" is a military term for "Race Walk." 

The event has three major components: Competition, Education, and Celebration. The race through the state parks and beaches of Delaware is a competition for all levels and will honor the men and women who have sacrificed for our freedoms in the Middle East.  The finish line will encompass the other components.  With the assistance of volunteers from our local schools and military members across our nation, a Middle East Historical Exhibit will be available for everyone to enjoy.  This walk through history will help connect our communities with the military members attending the event.  Lastly, there will be a “Celebration 4 Warriors” with local vendors and live music from 11am – 7:00pm.  Stay, enjoy the celebration, and connect with people, military and civilian, from across the United State of America.  

Everyone pre-registered by April 1, 2021 and signed-in to the Race4Warriors event will be guaranteed a commemorative military challenge coin and an event t-shirt.  Competitors registered after April 1st will receive a T-Shirt/Coin as supplies last. All competitors will leave with the knowledge of participating in an event which truly supports and honors our Veterans!

Our women and men deployed to the Middle East do not stop due to the weather; so rain or shine, come out and enjoy our race and festivities. 

On behalf of myself and our Board of Directors, made up of all retired Chief Master Sergeant First Sergeants, thank you for considering joining the Race4Warriors Event!
