Event Description

Our Armed Forces go through a lot even after they've returned home from deployment and sometimes they need a hand-up to return to a normal civilian life. It's Our Turn Inc. 501(c)3, a Veteran group composed of men and women who have served in the Armed Forces, has designed this race because they believe there is great honor in helping their brothers and sisters who have sacrificed and fought for our freedom.

Last year, It's Our Turn, Inc. was honored to be able to build a home for a veteran in Charlotte County but this year we want to set our sights on MAXIMUM IMPACT and help as many veterans in need as we can! Band with us to make this our biggest year and let's see how many veterans lives we can make a difference in by giving them a hand up!

Now, "It's Your Turn" to stand-up, and help the Veterans in need in Charlotte County!

This year’s race is the 3nd part of a Five-Year Race Series honoring each branch of our United States Armed Forces. This year's theme is aiming high and dedicated to the United States Air Force!

If you want to experience this patriotic and inspiring race, please do not delay signing-up, the physical race has sold out every year! This year we will open up 100 extra spots to accommodate the growing popularity of this event, but don't miss your chance to be apart of this great cause!

Registered participants of the physical & virtual 10k & 5k race will receive a gender specific race shirt (if registered by April 1, 2018), and an Air Force themed finisher medal.

Registered participants of the physical race will also have entry into a drawing valued at $500, (Southwest Airlines Gift Card), commemorative military awards for overall male and female in both 5k &10k races, 1st, 2nd & 3rd awards in all age groups, pre & post-race entertainment, including live music, color guard & fly-over by the Florida War Birds, post-race food by Jason's Deli.

Raffles items will be available from local business & sponsors.
