The annual running event and gathering takes place in Middletown, CT and honors our military heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice. It is an all-day event designed around a 65KM run that dedicates one kilometer to each of the fallen 65 men and women from CT. The run is divided into eight laps beginning and ending at Veterans Memorial Park, home of the Connecticut Trees of Honor Memorial (CTHM). There will be a large memorial ceremony in the afternoon upon completion of the final lap.
This year, we have set up a virtual 5K race for to help raise funds for our event. What’s a virtual race? It is a “race” that can be run (or walked) at any location or time you choose. Run or walk on the road, trail, treadmill, track, or even at another race. You get to run/walk your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. Or, challenge your friends and form a team to complete 65K as a group! Participants will receive a 2018 Run For the Fallen CT T-Shirt and custom challenge coin upon registration in lieu of a medal. This is also a great way to participate remotely if you are not able to attend the event in September.
