WHEN:23 August, 2015 – 1000 hours (10:00am)
WHERE:To be held at swords park on the rims overlooking Billings, MT
a 5k run for everyone and an 8.5 MILE warrior run for those who dare!
A traditional run would indeed help us reach our goal of awareness and funding for veterans and veterans issues in our area, however I wanted this to be more than a timed run. I wanted to create a course that required those who chose to participate to have dig just a little deeper to finish. It is my hope that those who participate will reflect not on their performance in the race, but rather reflect , honor and perhaps relate in a small way through the sacrifice of sweat and pain those who sacrificed with blood so that we can gather in peace for such an event.For those of you questioning if you can finish the Warrior course, or concerned that you may be embarrassed by your performance…don’t. Tie on your shoes, run, walk, help a buddy, keep moving and finish. It may be long, it may very well challenge you, and it indeed might hurt, but in the end you will, in a small way through the sacrifice of sweat, honor those who have sacrificed so much for you.Whether you choose to honor through the 5k or the Warrior Run, thank you for showing up, God bless you and God bless this great country. See you August 23, 2015 – Russ Palmer
