About This Activity

Colorado Veterans Project is proud to announce the 2nd Annual Memorial Day Run & March.

The Memorial Day Run & March invites civilians, Veterans, and uniformed Military to challenge themselves in friendly competition, while helping feed homeless Veterans. We have 3 routes to choose from: 5K Run, 10K Run, and 30K Ruck March. 

The Ruck March will be administered by a Norwegian Army Officer who will be presenting ALL civilian Marchers and ALL QUALIFYING uniformed Military Ruck Marchers with the Norwegian Foot March Medal, worn by the Norwegian Army.

100% of your registration (and donations!) goes directly to helping Colorado Veterans. We encourage you to share this page and get friends and family involved to support the cause! Thank you on behalf of Colorado Veterans Project.

Check out the Memorial Day Run & March website to learn more about our cause, our organization, and our event!
