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 Fund.  All registration fees, 100%, goes directly to the Semper Fi 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!! See you on the course :-)

Water Stations courtesy of Matt Barczyk - AllState Insurance, Lisa Maas - Small Business Alternatives, and Erin Green - Verify Services :-)

All participants receive a swag bag, shirt, finishers medal, and post race chocolate milk, water, beer for 21+, 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 2019 event is courtesy of The Erie Sports Commission!!

About the Semper Fi Fund
The Semper Fi 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 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 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.
