Our Armed Forces go through a lot even after they've returned home from deployment and sometimes they need a hand-up to return to a normal civilian life. It's Our Turn Inc. 501(c)3, a Veteran group composed of men and women who have served in the Armed Forces, has designed this race because they believe there is great honor in helping their brothers and sisters who have sacrificed and fought for our freedom.

Last year, It's Our Turn, Inc. was honored to make a MAXIMUM IMPACT,  on behalf of your donations,  to numerous Veterans & Veterans Organizations in our area. We were able to make contributions to the Honor Flight, DVM, Homeless Coalition and many, many, individual veterans in need in our area. Band with us again this year, to make a difference in the lives of our veterans by giving them the hand up they so greatly deserve!

 "It's Your Turn" to stand-up, and help the Veterans in need in Charlotte County!

This year’s race is the 4th part of a Five-Year Race Series honoring each branch of our United States Armed Forces. This year's theme is dedicated to those who  serve on land, sea and air, the United States Coast Guard!

If you want to experience this patriotic and inspiring race, please do not delay signing-up, the physical race has sold out every year by April 1st!  Again this year we will open up an additional 100 spots to accommodate the popularity of this event, but with only 800 total spots available you don't want to miss your chance to be apart of this great cause!

Registered participants of the physical & virtual 10k & 5k race will receive a gender specific race shirt (if registered by April 1, 2018), and an Coast Guard themed finisher medal.

Registered participants of the physical race will also have entry into a drawing valued at $500, commemorative military awards for overall male and female in both 5k &10k races, 1st, 2nd & 3rd awards in all age groups, pre & post-race entertainment, including live music, color guard, fly-over by the Florida War Birds, & post-race food by Jason's Deli.

Raffles items will be available from local business & sponsors.

-Waiting List-  As a courtesy to our runners, the Memorial Day Race offers a waiting list for those who wanted to run the physical race but missed out on registration . Please send an email to registration@memorialdayrace.org with the title "Waiting List" plus your first name, last name, and email address. Runners/Walkers are chosen to fill open spots on a first come, first serve basis. An email invitation to register will be sent by RunSignUp when your name becomes first on the list and will expire 12 hours after receipt (so please make sure to register as soon as you receive it). Please understand the race committee is very busy the weekend before the race and can not give updates as to where your name is on the waiting list. If you have not received an email invitation by Saturday, May 25th, unfortently you did not make it into this years race and there is NO race day registration.
