Join us across the nation for the 2nd annual National Veterans Memorial and Museum Virtual Run, Walk, Ruck and Roll to honor and remember those men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice. This is a virtual-only event.
Honor Them Together. The National Veterans Memorial and Museum’s virtual 1 mile, 5k, and 10k run, walk, ruck and roll is a family event to honor America’s lost heroes, all servicemen and servicewomen, who died defending our country's safety and freedom. The event features options to run, walk, ruck or roll 1 mile or 5k in honor of a lost loved one in your own life or 10K (6.2 miles) to honor those lost from all 6 branches of service.
I Will Always Remember. In honor of those lost, we encourage you to complete your run, walk or ruck during Memorial Day Week May 23 - 31, 2021.
We invite everyone nationwide to take part in this 2021 Memorial Day commemoration by sharing who you will never forget. Whether you’re honoring one lost loved one or honoring all the brave service members who died serving our country, we encourage you to use #WeHonorThemTogether and @nationalvmm to share photos, your location, and stories of your participation as well as those being remembered. The National Veterans Memorial and Museum team will not only be monitoring and highlighting the participation across the nation but also the names, ranks, and branches of service of those being honored by their friends and family during this time.
A portion of each entry fee and event proceeds benefit the National Veterans Memorial and Museum. Additional ways to get involved include:
- Become a Proud member
- Skip the run, donate directly to the National Veterans Memorial and Museum
- Give an additional gift
Note: this is a virtual race. Register by May 15 to get your packet on or before May 23 (maybe subject to postal delivery delays). Register after that date, packets will be mailed daily leading up to May 31. We want you to proudly wear your shirt during your run, walk, ruck and roll. Encourage your friends and family to participate too, and be sure to tag @nationalvmm and use #WeHonorThemTogether in your post-race photos on Instagram and social media.
