About This Activity

Welcome to the Seawolf Cadet Club's 1st Annual Veterans Day Memorial Run!  This event commemorates the service and sacrifice of our nation's 22 million veterans.  Half of the proceeds from the run will benefit the Military Warriors Support Foundation, while the other half will support the future of UAA's Seawolf Cadet Club.  Come out this Veterans Day weekend to have fun while helping America's veterans!

Event details and schedule

The run will begin at 10:00AM, though same-day registration will close at 9:45AM.  Participants will arrive in the UAA Social Science Building parking lot, which is where the race around Goose Lake will begin.

Bib pickup will be available on Thursday, 6 NOV from 7:30AM - 12:00PM in UAA Eugene Short Hall Room 211 (ROTC Office) and from 1:00PM - 4:30PM on the Drill Hall Floor of the JBER National Guard Armory (BLDG 49000); on Fridady, 7 NOV from 7:30AM - 4:30PM in UAA Eugene Short Hall Room 211 (ROTC Office); and from 8:00AM-9:45AM on site the day of the race.

On the day of the run, please park in the parking lot of the consortium library adjacent to the SSB parking lot as it will be occupied by runners.

Dress for safety and comfort. Winter weather is upon us so please bring whatever slip spikes, yak trax, or outfit your shoes with spikes. There is currently ice on the cource between the 1K and 1.5K points as well as between the 2K and the turn around. We will do our best to put sand down for extra traction. Also, patriotic or service-related attire is strongly encouraged.  We can now accept same-day registration payment via cash, personal check, or on at the bib pickup table. No excuse if you want to drag a friend along!  Train, hydrate, and we'll see you bright and early for the race on November 8th!
