Team Run Fierce has been featuring all the incredible branches of the United States Armed Forces…Now it’s time to honor and have continued hope for the active duty military members that haven’t made it home yet!
Do you have to complete the 5K and 16 Mile Challenge races?
No…You pick the race distance that suits you or your groups physical abilities!
**Reminder – Challenge yourself! It’s your race at your pace! You don’t have to complete any of these distances in one day…It’s not about how fast or how many days…It’s about finishing at your pace!
Why is the challenge 16 Miles?
The amazing POW/MIA medal awarded either in person or posthumously to our recognized POW/MIA military personnel has ’16 Barbed Wire Knots’on the medal! There’s no reason we can’t run/walk/bike…etc. 16 miles for all these amazing veterans that are still POW’s or MIA’s! Right?
The organization for the Run Fierce ‘Military Series’ – POW-MIA 5K/16 Mile Challenge’ was chosen because of all they do to assist our current POW-MIA families! The‘Nation League of Families’!
