About This Activity

Pre-race will have an EOD wounded warrior speaker.  The main goal is to raise awareness and support for the men, women and families of WIA/KIA EOD Warriors. All proceeds will benefit the EOD Wounded Warrior foundation.

The Blasters 8k run is a challenging course for any runner. The run winds you through historic fort story over elevation changes and mixed terrain to include soft sand and packed dirt.

Runners may volunteer to carry a flag for Navy EOD Technicians wounded in action (not returned to full duty) and all NAVY EOD fallen warriors. (Please email Race coordinator with requests)

For those unable to attend, but are looking to support with donations. Please follow this link.
