Support our Armed Forces at the National D-Day Memorial by participating in a patriotic themed 5K Run/Walk and Youth Fun Run! Not only does the race begin and end at the picturesque Memorial, but a total change in elevation of 220 feet provides a unique challenge for runners of all levels to “Conquer the Hill.” Participants will also have the opportunity to honor and interact with members of the Armed Forces past and present. Don’t want to run or walk? Sign up to be a “Fortitude Runner” to show your support for our Armed Forces and the National D-Day Memorial and receive a t-shirt.
Exciting updates for this year’s race include:
– Updated Course: New start/finish line at the Memorial’s new Quonset Hut style indoor/outdoor pavilion
– Referral Incentives: $2 of your registration fee back for every runner who registers through your registration links
– Individual Fundraising Incentives: Free race registration and entry into a raffle for a prize
– Women’s Race T-Shirt Options
Early bird pricing ends March 31 and the t-shirt guarantee deadline is May 1. Prizes will be awarded for the top finishers overall for the 5K Run and to the most spirited and top fundraisers. The top three finishers in each age category and all Youth Fun Run participants will receive a medal.
