National Veterans Day Run in Las Vegas is Open for Registration | Join us!

I have been sitting on this news for over a month, if not two months.

Last year at the Turkey Trot, Running Bro and I were approached by a Rep from the National Veterans Day Run asking for feedback on previous years.  The person knew he and I had run the event and we were glad to offer some insights.  

Fast forward to this summer. I receive an email from the National Race Director for NVDR and wishes to speak with me. 

Little did I know, that they were wanting to offer me the RD position for the Las Vegas location.  I was thrilled and most of all honored.  I love to RD and I love to show the running community (racers and volunteers) how valuable they are. 

After weeks of preparation I am able to share with you the good news!
