OTHER Opportunities

Not everyone can run 161 miles. What about the rest of us?  

Valor Run hosts 10 mile and 5K events that afford more casual runners the opportunity to remember our fallen. In May, we have a trail run in Virginia Beach, VA. In October, we have a virtual run allowing people across the country to run together on one day to honor our heroes.


How about a Valor Run in my city?

We are always looking for opportunities to expand too! If you are interested in have a Valor Run event in your area, please CONTACT US .

Who We Are

    161 Miler

Valor Run, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in September of 2014. The organization's mission is to unite communities through running events to honor the military women, and all military heroes, who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation during the Global War on Terror.

 

Proceeds above operating costs go to a scholarship that will be awarded each year starting in the 2016/17 school year. This scholarship is for children of women who served in Iraq or Afghanistan during OIF, OEF and OND. More information can be found at the VALOR RUN corporate website.
