Update... This year's Crossing the Frontier will be a Virtual only, but still not, your average Virtual 5k/10k! An email will go out 28May2020 with some specific instructions to add a bit of fun to the Virtual as well as a few surprises. We are working hard to make this as much fun as possible as we are well aware, everyone is 'virtual event out'!

Crossing the Frontier is not your average 5K/10K.  This 5K/10K is a cross country / road race that takes place in beautiful Frontier Park in Erie, PA with PT stations and a few surprises led by Recruiters / Veterans along the course. And best of all, this race benefits injured Service Members of all Branches through the Semper Fi & America's Fund.  All registration fees, 100%, goes directly to the Semper Fi & America's Fund. Come spend a couple hours with us on a beautiful Summer morning, having fun at a distinctly different 5K/10K while directly supporting those with life altering injuries!! New Course and PT stations for 2020 ... See you on the course :-)

All participants receive a shirt, finishers medal, and post race chocolate milk, water, beer for 21+ (Courtesy of Allegheny Beverage Company), fruit, and snacks. Each runner receives one ticket (able to purchase additional) for the Chinese Auction for a chance to win incredible prizes!! 

Please note... The processing fee for the 2020 event is courtesy of The Erie Sports Commission for the Third Year!!

About the Semper Fi & America's Fund
The Semper Fi & America's Fund provides urgently needed resources and lifetime support for combat wounded, critically ill and catastrophically injured members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. Case managers from the Semper Fi & America's Fund work one-on-one with service members and veterans in order to understand and support their individual needs right now and throughout their lifetime. They keep their overhead low so their impact on the lives of service members and veterans is greater. The Semper Fi & America's Fund has been awarded the highest ratings from watchdog groups: an A+ from CharityWatch – one of only two veteran nonprofits to receive this rating last year – and six consecutive “4-Star” ratings from Charity Navigator, an achievement attained by only 3% of rated charities.
