Race Description

A Memorial Mile and a competitive 5K OR register to join us, in solidarity, from the comfort of your geographic location. 

The Mogadishu Mile refers to a route that was run by American Rangers and Delta Force soldiers from a helicopter crash site to an appointed rally point held by the 10th Mountain Division on National Street during the Battle of Mogadishu on October 4, 1993. The Americans involved were part of Task Force Ranger, an attempt to eradicate Somali warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid. Originally they were supposed to take cover by running alongside a convoy of humvees and armored personnel carriers, however when the convoy failed to understand the vehicles were needed for cover, they left them and the soldiers were forced to run without support and and with very little ammunition.
