Check-in starts at 7:00 am; Race kicks off at 8:00 am.

The Mission Continues empowers veterans facing the challenge of adjusting to life at home to find new missions. The MIssion Continues redeploys veterans in their communities, so their shared legacy will be one of action and service.

Through the Mission Continues, veterans serve their country in new ways by engaging in our innovative and action-oriented programs. The first, The Mission Continues’ Fellowship, harnesses veterans’ strengths, skills, and their compassion and empowers them to volunteer with non-profit organizations in their community on a daily basis. The second, The Mission Continues’ Service Platoons, brings teams of veterans who are working together with partners at the local level to build stronger communities and tackle pressing issues.

The Mission Continues focuses the innate spirit of service demonstrated by the men and women of the US military. The Mission Continues mobilizes wide-ranging support from volunteers, non-profit organizations and donors. And works together to solve some of the most challenging issues facing our communities. Through this unique model that provides reciprocal benefit for the veteran and the local community, veterans volunteer to help others and, through their service, build new skills and networks that help them successfully transition home.
