Run for the fallen Core runners

Join VIRGINIA's
CORE RUN team

April 30 - May 3, 2020

Fort Story to Arlington National Cemetery | 250 Miles

SERIOUS RUNNERS ONLY PLEASE 
We are assembling a small group (20 maximum), of active or former military personnel or dedicated athletes to comprise a core team of runners committed to a 4-day 250 mile tribute run from Virginia Beach to Arlington National Cemetery. Run will begin at 630am from the Light house at Fort Story and conclude in Arlington National Cemetery Section 60. The run has a specific timetable for each marker throughout each day. Runners need to be flexible, willing to run on any given day and when needed. RAIN OR SHINE.

Runners will run approx. 1 mile for every Virginia fallen military hero who died while serving during the current war on terror, stopping to salute and give tribute by name at every Hero Marker, briefly greeting family, friends and comrades who may be waiting nearby. Stopping no longer than 90 seconds each.

Each runner must be physically capable of a consistent 8-9 minute mile for 2 mile legs. Core teams will regularly rotate over the 4-day period. We are not looking for quantity of runners but a solid team dedicated to the remembrance of those who gave their lives and their families. This route will be grueling at times because the trail winds through many hilly areas as we near Northern Virginia. A specific pace must be maintained in order to timely greet waiting families.

I am thankful to once again be joining my Run for the Fallen family as we bring honor and remembrance to the fallen and their families. I have run with the honor and remember flag in many states and am honored to run for all of our Virginia military heroes this May.

My first Run for the Fallen was during the National Run in 2018. I found out about this organization after my cousin, who was a scout sniper in the Marine Corps passed away. He was an avid runner and what better way to honor him and all other services members than by saying their names to keep their legacy alive and run for them. It's an honor to be able to do this!
