The VDAY25K is a mission to honor our Veterans, Past & Present. In all, with a show of force that uniquely mirrors the warrior culture of our Service Men & Women.  

You will be placed within a team of like-minded patriots & veterans, moms, dads, brothers, sisters…Friends all becoming one-mission-focused-TEAM.

The VDAY25K is a 14 mile” ish” team hike, led by a Ruck to Remember Team Leader, we will begin our Mission with a “Warrior Salute” just after sunrise and together, with a fun-filled team leader led movement through local War Memorials.  This is about camaraderie and having fun!  

During the movement, at key stops, Team members will be encouraged to share/listen to “Stories of Courage.” Simply, inspiring acts of our Veterans that will make you laugh or sometimes even cry.  

Note: Most Outposts including the Mission in the Nation's Capital, will be an out and back.  Thus you will be ending near where you stop.  Team members are also encouraged to attend the VDAY 25K (Hot Wash) where the first beer is on your Team Leader!
