FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – The 7th Race for Warrior 5k/10k hosted by the Northeast Indiana Base Community Council returned to the Fort Wayne International Airport.
It’s part of the Fort Wayne Running Club Point Series Race.
“Here you can celebrate in patriotic style by running, walking, rucking down the same airstrips that used to service more than 100,000 military personnel during World War II,” the council said.
Each participant received an official Race for the Warrior t-shirt and a swag bag. Afterward, a post-race party welcomed people for music, food, bounce house, military static displays which includes a new virtual reality military experience. The council added that runners age 21 and over will also receive one free beer as part of their registration.
The Race for the Warrior is a fundraiser that supports the Northeast Indiana Base Community Council’s Military Support Fund as well as year-round programs for members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, Veterans and military families.
