Running Virtually for Veterans

Have you ever done a virtual race? It’s where you sign up online, pay the fee, and you run the race anywhere you choose. You don’t have to travel to the race venue. Usually they mail you a medal after the race date for bragging rights. Sometimes they want you to verify your distance/time and other times (most often) it’s based on the honor system. Virtual races are a fun way to stay motivated without all the travel costs of location races and they’re usually done for a charity.

The DAV 5k has a virtual option just like this! You can sign up and run it wherever and whenever you like and you still get the great DAV 5k shirt and bib while supporting Disabled American Veterans. What a GREAT way to spend Veteran’s Day!

If you want to participate in person, the Tulsa DAV 5k is being held on November 4th, the weekend before Veterans Day, at Guthrie Green. It is a run, walk, roll and motorcycle ride to thank those who served and raises awareness of the issues our ill and injured veterans face every day.

You can save $5 off your race entry with the code SAVE5 too!

All veterans, active-duty service members, reservists, National Guard and ROTC or service academy cadets are eligible for exclusive benefits on race day, including a free registration. Veterans may also participate in the DAV 5K using a wheelchair or hand cycle.

The DAV 5k Tulsa – Running for our disabled veterans

I love running races with a charity cause. I feel like I’m running for more than just myself and it often motivates me to push a little harder. The DAV 5k Run to Honor Veterans raises funds and awareness for disabled veterans across the country. Funds raised through the DAV 5k help the DAV connect veterans with health care, disability, employment, education, and financial benefits. It is presented by Disabled American Veterans and supported by USAA, their 2017 National Series Sponsor.
