About This Activity

Join the Wright Patterson Medical Group 5/6 as we host our THIRD annual "Running for the Wounded 5K"!

Each year all profits from this race is donated to a non profit that supports wounded warriors; this year we have decided to support the South Carolina organization Battle Buddies.   Battle Buddies trains and matches service dogs with wounded warriors, and assist in their daily lives as they cope with the visible and invisible wounds of war.

Event details and schedule

The race is held on a beautiful stretch of a partially shaded route near Wright Patterson Air Force Base.  Volunteers will be on site to direct traffic; participants are encouraged to arrive early, to park and pick up t-shirts.  Same day registration and t-shirt pick up opens at 0645.  The cost of registration includes a t-shirt, available in unisex sizes from Small to Xtra Large.   Additional shirts may be purchased during the registration process.   *REGISTRATION RECEIVED AFTER 15 AUGUST WILL NOT INCLUDE A T-SHIRT*

The fun run/walk begins at 0730, with light refreshments being offered following the event.   A map has been attached for assistance in locating the entry point to the area of admittance on WPAFB - entering from this location does not require a Government ID card.
