VFC is Proud to sponsor 6th Annual Veteran's Run
New for this year: It will be a 2-DAY EVENT! We will be adding a special Challenge Medal for anyone running both days! Sign-ups for the Challenge will end 45 days prior to the event, so get registered early!
Let's honor America's veterans with an event focused on supporting them! This event will have both a "fun run" aspect to it as well as competition as the event will have a certified time for all distances! The path is the paved Courtney Campbell Causeway Trail on the southern side of the bridge. There is a relatively high (in Florida terms) peak that each distance (with the exception of the 5K) will cover along the route that allows for a picturesque view of Tampa Bay. It is truly one of Tampa's most beautiful places to run or walk.
There will be a 5K and a 10K option for this race on Saturday. We will then have the Half Marathon and 16-mile option on Sunday. All distances have you running on the south side trail of the Courtney Campbell Causeway, out and back style. While each of the distances provides a beautiful view, only the 16 mile race will run the entire length of the bridge.
We will have plenty of aid stations along the course with water and an electrolyte drink, and we will also have a couple choices for food-type fuel for half marathon and 16 mile runners. We will ensure sanitary conditions for all aid stations, but feel free to ask questions about specifics if you choose.
Proceeds from this race will go to OTS 4 VETS. This foundation supports our Veterans and their families through programs centered on aiding transitioning servicemembers as they learn how to adapt from military to civilian life.
