Since 2012, the Veterans Race presented by Destination Races and sponsored by GEICO has been honoring all who served and currently serving in our military.  Our goal is to raise $50,000 to support local veteran organizations support services. This year, we are proud to host the race with Veterans One-Stop Center and Buffalo Naval & Military Park.  Proceeds will benefit these two groups to PRESERVE. PROTECT. HONOR all who served.

                                5K            10K*

  • Civilian:               $30           $40                  

  • Active/Veterans:    $22           $30

  • Deployed "virtual":  $25

  • PATRIOT / VIP:     $100

You will receive a custom bib and a race item.  This year, we will offer you the option to add-on a 10th Anniversary item.  The race is open to all, civilian or military, with special awards for top overall in each class. Run in honor of a veteran or as a military group.  The 10K is not approved yet.  We will allow runners to switch to the 10K for an upgrade charge of $10(civilian)/$8(vets).

Our goal is to raise $50,000 this year.  Our mission is to support the Veterans One-Stop Center in their effort to deliver direct services to assist veterans and their families and to honor veterans by preserving the ships & artifacts at the Buffalo Naval & Military Park that will help to educate the public about the sacrifices of all those that served.
