The top 3 finishers in the women's and men's categories will receive Operation Courage 5K medals!

This course is mostly on trails and is not recommended for strollers, however, a sport stroller, which is what most running parents use, will have absolutely no problems following this course.

ABOUT OPERATION COURAGE
Image
Operation Courage Is Beautiful is the nation's first and only ongoing non-profit care package program supporting women in the military. Women make up over 16% of the US Armed Forces, yet they are often forgotten or overlooked by military support organizations.

With the help of people like you, Operation Courage is Beautiful collects in-kind donations (goods) and monetary donations to create and ship high-quality care packages made of female-oriented personal care products, reading materials and more for service members deployed across the globe. Requests for these care packages are made by the service member herself, a colleague, friend or family member via our online request form. Discover the ways you can help!

Our goal in 2019 is to fully fund and collect enough donations to send 1,000 large USPS flat rate care packages with a total weight of 9 tons to overseas deployed personnel.

Operation Courage is Beautiful is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt, non-profit organization in which donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Tax ID#47-4812161.
