2012 Week of the Eagles Run for the Fallen

Morale, Welfare and RecreationFort Campbell, KY – Join the Fort Campbell community on August 11th as we hold our 5th Annual Run for the Fallen. This commemorative walk/run will take place at Sabalauski Air Assault School.

The event will include a two mile walk and a 3.2 mile run. Runners and walkers will be received at 6:30am and the opening ceremonies will begin at 8:00am. Runners will depart at 8:15am followed by the walkers at 8:30am.

Run for the Fallen began after Flag Day 2008 when a dedicated team of runners ran across America from Fort Irwin to Arlington National Cemetery. One mile for every Soldier, Sailor, Airmen, and Marine killed in Operation Iraqi Freedom.

For ten weeks, team members marked each mile with an American flag and sign card in remembrance of each service member. Each year since the run across America, runners from around the world have joined Run for the Fallen in remembering our fallen. Over 150,000 miles have been collectively run in remembrance of those fallen in OIF and OEF since 2008.

Participants are urged to run/walk in memory of fallen Soldiers and you may preprint your remembrance bib at www.fortcampbellmwr.com prior to the event and bring it along with you.  Strollers are allowed but please do not bring bicycles or pets.
