This is a 10 mile, 5k and 13.1 mile trail run honoring our post-9/11 servicewomen especially those who died in support of combat operations. Returning this year: the 13.1 Be Strong Challenge. Run both the 5k and 10 miler course. The 10 miler is a loop with few miles of technical trails. The 5k is an out-and-back on fairly easy trails. Enjoy the Mile of Valor on the 10 miler course and help remember the 161 women who died supporting combat operations since 9/11.
There is a 2.5 hour limit on the 10 miler.
