2019 Remembering D-Day 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2 -Olympia
2019 Remembering D-Day 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2 *THIS IS A VIRTUAL RACE! June 6, 2019 is the 75th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings and the Battle of Normandy. We want to honor the courage and sacrifice of those who secured freedom for all of us. Join us on our Remembering D-Day 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2 to remember and reflect what happened 75 years ago on June 6, 1944. We will be donating at least 15% of each registration to The Gary Sinise Foundation, which is recognizing and honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need. By providing equipment and training, the Foundation is ensuring these heroes perform to the best of their abilities. "Freedom and security are precious gifts that we, as Americans, should never take for granted. We must do all we can to extend our hand in times of need to those who willingly sacrifice each day to provide that freedom and security. While we can never do enough to show gratitude to our nation's defenders, we can always do a little more." -Gary Sinise *For a limited time get your official t-shirt and/or hoodieHERE. What: This is a 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2 virtual run (or walk) to remember and honor those that fought for freedom on D-Day 75 years ago. You choose which distance you want to complete.

You can also choose to sign up for a Remembering D-Day Lapel Pin or Patch, instead of a medal! WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE? A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. And your medal will be shipped directly to you. Complete a virtual 5K, 10K, half marathon and more! *This is what the Remembering D-Day pin looks like.
