RUN FOR THE FALLEN CT 2015
EVENT DATE: Sep 12, 2015
Run for the Fallen CT is an annual running event located in Middletown, Ct which honors our military heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice for us all.
It is an all day event with multiple parts including a 65 KM run, one kilometer for each of the 65 men and women from CT who have given their lives for our freedom in Iraq and Afghanistan.
This year's event will be Saturday September 12, 2015 from 6:00 AM to 3:30 PM.
The run will be split into 8 laps each beginning and ending at Snow Elementary School at 299 Wadsworth St. Middletown, CT. Runners can sign up for as many laps as they would like but each lap will be at a 10 minute per mile pace.
There will be a large ceremony at the school upon completion of the final lap. The ceremony will include guest speakers, an Honor and Remember flag presentation, and a flag planting ceremony where we will say the name of each of our 65 brave men and women.
Our event is attended by many Gold Star families who come out to honor their loved ones. So gather all your friends and family and come on out to let them know that we will not forget their loved ones either.
There will also be a walking area, D.J, kids activities and a free cookout. While there are no mandatory fees or donation requirements we encourage all to form a team for the military or veteran based charity of their choice. If you do not wish to form a team please consider donating to one.
