COMMUNITY: The race has created a community of runners, veterans, volunteers, veteran organizations and business partners. Challenge and service create the strongest bonds and our community is proof.


Want to get involved but not interested in running? We need 200+ volunteers to make the race day a success! Whether it is packing swag bags, manning packet pick-up, guiding runners along the course or other clandestine activities, we need your help! Thanks for helping us honor our veterans and servicemembers!

If you have any questions, want to get on the volunteer list, or have a large group that would like to get involved, please email Connie Belt at or with the subject line BRC 2021 Volunteer.
