About This Activity

Our event raises awareness of the sacrifice made by Tennessee's Fallen Military Heroes.  

Since the attacks of 11 September 2001, approximately 7,000 American service members have been killed in action. Additionally, thousands of non-combat deaths have occurred. Each man or woman we lost has a name. Each served and sacrificed bravely. Each had hopes and dreams for the future. Each still has people who desperately love them.

Through your participation you are not only paying tribute and honoring these brave heroes; your presence gives solace and comfort to the Gold Star Families they left behind. In lieu of numeric race bibs, each participant will wear a memorial bib containing the name of a fallen TN military hero. After completing the event each participant will receive a commemorative dog tag.

Runners and walkers are welcome.

We will be giving away door-prizes after the race and will have a select number of awesome silent auction items -- including an Army boot signed by Nascar ledgend Darrell Waltrip.

About Medals of Honor

Medals of Honor gives the endurance/race community a tangible way to thank and give back to the families that lost loved ones while serving our Military. Through Medals of Honor racers can compete in honor of a fallen U.S. service member and donate a finisher's medal to the surviving family.
