Since 2012, the Veterans Race presented by Destination Races and sponsored by GEICO has been honoring all who served and currently serving in our military.  Our goal is to raise $15,000 towards local veteran organizations support services. This year, we are proud to host the race with Veterans One-Stop Center and Buffalo Naval Park.  Proceeds will benefit these two groups to PRESERVE. PROTECT. and HONOR all who served.  

The 5K race is open to all, civilian or military.  Virtual option available, use the "Deployed" category.
