Course Map

We updated our race course to honor a Remington local WWII Veteran, TSGT Harold J. Davis. On November 13, 1941, he entered the U.S. Army and was immediately sent to Europe and into battle during the Second World War. During his career Sergeant Davis served as platoon sergeant and fought in Operation Torch, Crucifix Hill, Omaha Beach and the Battle of the Bulge. Incredibly, in each battle Sergeant Davis would be wounded, sent for medical care, and then he immediately returned to battle.
