Join Arizona's
CORE RUN TEAM

September 15-17, 2021

Freedom Park Tucson to Wesley Bolin Park, Phoenix | 147 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 3-day 147 mile tribute run from Freedom Park, Tucson to Wesley Bolin Park, Phoenix. 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 Arizona 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 3-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 in Arizona. A specific pace must be maintained in order to timely greet waiting families.

If you are interested in becoming a part of our core team or be a drop-in runner contact us at, Arizona@RunfortheFallen.org.
