Arizona Run for the Fallen
Phoenix, Arizona – 10-18-20
ABOUT THE MISSION:
Runners of active or former military personnel or dedicated athletes will be a team that will run 1 mile for every Arizona fallen military hero who died while serving during the current War on Terror since the attack on the USS Cole, as well as LEO/First Responders, stopping to salute and give tribute by name at every Hero Marker, briefly greeting family, friends, and comrades who may be waiting nearby. Stopping no longer than 90 seconds at each. Each runner must be physically capable of a consistent 8 1/2-minute mile for a minimum of 1 hour, or 6 miles or longer. Core teams will rotate every hour over the 3-day period. This will be a solid team dedicated to the remembrance of those who gave their lives, and for their families. The route is grueling at times because of the trail winds through many hilly areas of Arizona, and a specific pace must be maintained in order to greet waiting families. The run goes from Tucson to Phoenix for a total of 147 miles. Patriot Guard Riders will stand a flag line to welcome and honor those who have given their life for our nation, and for those who have run the race to honor the fallen.
