Join us for our 3rd annual salute to our Veterans – Veterans Day Weekend!
We invite you to run or walk at the Connecticut Department of Veterans Affairs complex in Rocky Hill CT. We have chosen 3 miles – a true American Distance. The looping course features a scenic viewpoint when you get to the top campus. We encourage all abilities to join us! Great shirts and swag will be given out but make sure you pre-register in time to guarantee sizing.
Net proceeds raised will be donated to AT&T Veterans ERG of CT/New England and Connecticut Department of Veterans Affairs that will support veterans outreach programs throughout Connecticut and New England.
The 3 mile distance race and 3 mile walk event will be timed.
