This coming Memorial Day Monday features the club’s annual tradition – the Memorial 4 Miler. This year, MCRRC is pleased to have a special guest, wear blue Bethesda at this year’s Memorial Day 4 Miler.This Memorial Day, wear blue Bethesda invites you to join a Circle of Remembrance before the race. The Circle of Remembrance will commence at 7:40AM near the race start. The Circle is free and open to all runners, volunteers, and spectators. Names of the fallen will be provided.
wear blue: run to remember is a national non-profit running community that honors the service and sacrifice of the American military. We run for the fallen, for the fighting, and for the families. We begin each gathering with a Circle of Remembrance and read aloud the names of the fallen, then we will stride onward, becoming a living memorial honoring generations of heroes who have given their lives in service to our nation.
wear blue also invites runners and walkers to commit the miles that they run or walk this Memorial Day in honor of each service member killed in the Global War on Terror. By the close of Memorial Day, runners and walkers across the nation will have shared in a national effort to honor every member of the American military who laid down his or her life for this country.
Please join us this Memorial Day as we remember and honor those who have sacrificed and those who love them. Make your steps purposeful. For the fallen. For the fighting. For the families.
