About Go Commando
The 2012 Go Commando Half Marathon & 5k will be Saturday, October 20th and is limited to the first 1,500 participants. In 2011, the inaugural race sold out. The Go Commando Half Marathon presented by CDE Lightband began in 2011 as a tribute to the soldiers at Fort Campbell and their families.
The event is also aimed at promoting health & wellness to the Clarksville-Montgomery County community. The race is completely community driven, with local organizations and businesses partnering to create a fun and engaging event. The race is also featured in the Guinness Book of World Records after a local Fort Campbell solider, Marc DiBernardo, ran the entire 13.1 miles wearing a gas mask.
