The event will begin at 7 a.m. with music from DJ and Army veteran Michael Wykoff. Marines will lead participants through a warm-up before the 10K race at 8 a.m. Five PT stations will be located along the course, with participants being encouraged by veterans of all four branches of the military and members of the Erie Bureau of Police (EPD) SWAT team. Participants will be presented with a medal by a member of the military at the end of the race. The post-race party for participants will feature beverages, food, a Chinese Auction and music.
