Hello Port Dawgs,
We are so excited to be able to host the event again here in San Antonio for our Porters. This year we will be having a few different options for you to accomplish your run, a open course 5k and 1.5 mile, and a virtual 5k run that you can accomplish anywhere and submit your results on here.
Location to start will be behind Gillium Gym at 6:30am to 8:30am 301 Kirknewton St, San Antonio, TX 78243
Here is the a little bit more from the history of our event.
In 2011, the Air Transportation Community experienced a tragic loss when one of our
Brothers was murdered, TSgt Curtis E. Eccleston. In 2013, the Port Dawgs at Kadena
Air Base held a memorial run in honor of Curtis, what would become an annual event
held around the world across the entire career field. It builds on the strong comradery
our career field already maintains and reinforces to every Airmen, when you join this
career field, you join a family.
The event is an opportunity to highlight on our installations and in our communities how
much Port Dawgs mean to each other. It is traditionally held during National Defense
Transportation Week (11-15 May), but we know that some units will have to be flexible
because after all, we are making the mission happen across the globe 24/7/365 and
must consider restrictions due to the COVID 19.
Get outside and get your fit to fight fitness in with a run/walk and help us remember and
honor the members of our pack who are no longer with us. Thank you for all you do and
it is an honor to be a member of your team…PORT DAWGS
