NEW DATE ANNOUNCEMENT
SATURDAY, JULY 26, 2014
Yesterday we announced that we had rescheduled the New Bern Run For The Warriors® to Saturday, July 5. Unfortunately, although Hurricane Arthur will have passed by then, we don’t know yet what debris and flooding he will leave behind. The safety of participants and volunteers is extremely important and we will not have the ability to assess the race course properly in time to finalize a race the next day.
We will share the new date with each of you next week. We realize that by changing the weekend, this might interfere with vacation plans for some of you. If the new date does not work with your schedule, you will have the opportunity to contact our team and we will mail your race shirt directly to you.
Of course, it is also our hope that the new date works well for each of you and maybe even more people too. As soon as everything is finalized, registration will be reopened. Be sure to share this information with your friends and family!
We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding in planning this new date.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: TICKET SCAM
On Thursday evening, we were contacted by someone in New Bern, informing our staff that copies of our flyer had been printed and were being sold as “tickets” to this run. This group is in no way affiliated with Hope For The Warriors® and any money given did not come to Hope For The Warriors® or register you for the New Bern Run For The Warriors®. Please immediately contact the police if anyone approaches you with a flyer, offering to sell you a ticket to this event.
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.
