LAS VEGAS, NV - The National Veterans Day Run, (www.veteransdayrun.org) is an annual running event that will be hosted in 40 cities nationwide on November 10 and 11, 2013. Registration is now open for the 2013 event including a 1K run/walk for children, a 5K run and an 11K run.

To commemorate and honor military men and women, the race commences at 11 minutes after the hour. Additionally, the inaugural National Veterans Day Run half-marathon will be hosted in San Jose, Calif. In addition, National Veterans Day Run is partnering with the charity Folds of Honor Foundation (http://www.foldsofhonor.org/) to increase awareness and donations for military families.

“2013 is a milestone year for the National Veterans Day Run,” said Keri Mullins, national director of operations, National Veterans Day Run series. “With more than 40 participating cities and the addition of our virtual run, we anticipate more than 25,000 runners supporting this year’s event.”

The event, which started in nine cities in 2011, has quadrupled in size due to overwhelming community support and interest. Last year’s National Veterans Day Run events raised close to $10,000 for veterans programs.

“Our virtual running event also makes it possible for families to connect with their loved ones overseas,” continues Mullins. “When signing up for remote participation, the runners will receive their official race bib and be able to record their times in order to participate with their families. With runners participating on the same date around the globe, we are creating a commemorative event that showcases our love and commitment to the men and women who are willing to sacrifice their lives for our freedom.”

To see a full list of cities and/or to register for the event, please visit www.veteransdayrun.org.

National Veterans Day Run is seeking both local and national sponsors for this year’s event. To get involved with the National Veteran’s Day Run as a sponsor, please visit www.veteransdayrun.org/sponsors.

The Inaugural Charleston National Veterans Day Run will take place at James Allen Park. The race will offer one distance a timed 5k run. If you'd prefer to just come out and support our Veterans, we also offer a supporter option, 100% of which is donated to our charity partner, Folds of Honor Foundation. We expect a large turnout of veterans and active-duty military to this race, including many current and former Veterans, so come on out and support the men and women of our armed forces.
