This Run Fierce Military Series – Vietnam Veterans 5K/10K/58 Mile Challenge will be honoring our incredible Vietnam Veterans living in our communities, Killed in Action (KIA) and still Missing in Action (MIA). EVERY community around the United States and US Territories has veterans and families that were heavily affected by the Vietnam War.
Do you have to complete the 5K, 10K and the 58 Mile Challenge?
No…You pick the race distance that suits you or your groups abilities!
**Reminder – 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…It’s about finishing!
Why is the challenge 58 miles?
In 1982 theVietnam Veterans Memorialwas dedicated in Washington, D.C., inscribed with the names of 57,939 members of U.S. armed forces who had died or were missing as a result of the war. Over the following years, additions to the list have brought the total past 58,200.
Why is the special Vietnam Veterans ‘Dog Tag’ included in the package?
The ‘Dog Tag’ was a major part of the Vietnam Veterans uniform…Many of the 58,000+ were only able to be identified by the ‘Dog Tag’ they wore…As with ALL the Team Run Fierce medals…The Vietnam Veterans ‘Dog Tag’ is also a special one-of-a-kind designed ‘Dog Tag’! Once I finish my Vietnam Veterans distance…I’m going to give my race ‘Dog Tag’ to the first Vietnam Veteran I see in the grocery store and tell him…Thank You for your service!
The organization for the Run Fierce Military Series – Vietnam Veterans 5K/10K/58 Mile Challenge virtual race was chosen by my father…A Vietnam Veteran that has battled the effects of Agent Orange. He chose this organization because of all they do to help the Vietnam Veterans and their surviving families.
