The KRC Veteran's Day Run is the perfect way to celebrate, remember, and honor all of our Military Veterans, Active Duty, Reserves, Spouses, and Friends of the Military. Advanced registration for this event will be FREE with the option to purchase swag. (Same-day registration will be $10 with an option to purchase swag for $20)
This year the KRC Veteran's Day Run will be taking place on the White River Trail with the start and finish at Riverview Park in Lyons, WI. The White River Trail is a rails-to-trails crushed limestone path on the former SOO railway. This trail is canopied by trees and provides the perfect place to reflect on the selfless service the military provides.
Why are we making this event free? It is free because we are thankful for the Men and Women that had the courage to follow their calling and protect our lives and our freedoms. We hope you will join us in showing your appreciation and respect by joining us on November 7th.
When signing up, please consider purchasing a flag that will line the start/finish area to honor or in memory of a military hero in your life. We would love to line the street with flags.
There also will be an option to donate to the Kenosha Running Company's Red White and Blue Program. This program provides free or discounted race entries to active duty or retired military personnel, police, and sheriffs and their spouses to run or walk several of our events throughout the year. This unique program helps to provide a way for them to remain physically active while also fostering a sense of community
Event distance and start times:
6 mile run/walk: 9:30 a.m
12 mile run: 9:30 a.m.
2 mile walk: 9:45 a.m.
Once you are done with your run, continue the festivities by supporting one of the local Lyons' businesses for a bite or a pint.
