Hope For The Warriors® is pleased to announce the
New Bern Run For The Warriors®.
Run For The Warriors® is a unique race dedicated to the men and women wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan, their families, and families of the fallen. It is a celebration of their strength and resolve and a promise to continue restoring self, family, and hope. The Run For The Warriors® race series provides wounded service members encouragement and the opportunity to pursue the sport of running, walking, or cycling to assist in their physical and emotional rehabilitation.
Run For The Warriors® unites military and civilian community members, connecting and educating each on the importance of embracing their neighbors. The goal of each event is to establish a long term understanding and respect for the needs of local military families.
This unique road race will take place at one of the true gems of the City, Union Point Park Complex which is a scenic six-acre site located at the point of the Neuse and Trent Rivers in beautiful historic downtown New Bern. Hope For The Warriors® and the community will honor wounded service members during the opening ceremony. The race will close with the awards ceremony. Awards will be presented to the top three male and female overall finishers and top three males and females in each age category.
