3rd Annual Veteran's Day 5K - Run for the Yorktown
Saturday, November 9, 2013 - 8:00 a.m. Run/Walk
Join us for the most patriotic race in Charleston! Our Veterans Day 5K is all about honoring Veterans and our Military in a place surrounded by history. Last year our runners began the race with a bang as we fired an anti-tank gun at the starting line. This year, wer'e going to top that by thrilling the participants even more when an AT-6 Texan Warbird does a fly-over at our start line! We are honored to have Mr. Bobby Jonte piloting the aircraft with this aerial display to get our runners pumped up for the 5K! It will be an inspirational morning with a Starting line and Finish line you won’t find at any other 5K in town!
Our first annual 5K was an exciting morning filled with a O0-Rah from an Admiral, firing of a anti tank gun to start the race, a run down Patriot's Point Road and around Waterfront Park and a finish across the pier of the USS Yorktown.
This year's event will once again honor our Nation’s Veterans at the historic USS Yorktown Naval & Maritime Museum with the same scenie finish line on the pier.
In 2011 we were honored to have our active duty military and Veterans participate in the run and we gave them a race thank you gift, an embroidered fleece beanie. We will again be giving away a gift to all Military and Veterans who register for our race.
