The Army Marathon was created to honor our Soldiers and National Guardsmen on the anniversary of the “Shot Heard Around The World” — the 1775 Battles of Lexington and Concord that signaled the beginning of the American Revolution and our independence! This exciting event will be held on April 21, 2013 coursing from Killeen to Temple, Texas in the vicinity of Ft. Hood – the largest active duty armored post in the United States military.
Our Mission is to honor the service and sacrifice of all military personnel, their families and survivors by raising funds through The Army Marathon and other races in order to support charitable activities for the broader military community.
You participation and support will help assure the success of the 2013 event and will forever enhance the lives of the veterans and families served by the benefiting charities.
