SIGN YOUR TEAM UP AT ACTIVE.COM
The Detroit Area Marines (DAM) and The Historic Fort Wayne are teaming up this year to bring an event that you will not want to miss. As your run, walk, or Ruck you will enjoy the sites and sounds dating back to the Civil War.
The race will begin in the center of the Fort where you will be surrounded by barracks and walls where many troops were trained in preparation for a possible attack from the French invasion from Canada. You will know the race has begun because instead of the usual horn we are used too, a cannon dating back to the Civil War era will be utilized. You will run out of the Fort through a tunnel and travel the roads going by the old movie theater, housing, ammo points and many other sites. The race will end back inside the safety of the Forts walls where all runners, walkers, and those that Ruck will receive a one of a kind DAM finisher medal.
The Cannon will go off at 0800 hours on August 8th,2015 for the 10K runners, and again at 0815 hours for the 5K runners.
