Steps 'n Salutes Green Beret 5K

Celebration, patriotism, family and community fun, and charity benefits are all ingredients for the third annual Steps and Salutes Green Beret 5k (SCREECH!)….. WAIT!!!  The patriotic scenario may be a bit different from last year when our second annual event was filled with fast paces; amazing weather; red, white, and blue and Green Beret camaraderie; and voices ringing loud and clear with the patriotic sing-a-long!

BUT in this new year of social distancing, practicing safety precautions from the coronavirus and health concerns, our enthusiasm for the 3rd Annual Steps ‘n Salutes Green Beret 5K is not dampened one bit!  As in the military, a contingency plan is being put into place.

Please join us for the Steps ‘n Salutes Green Beret 5K that has gone VIRTUAL and GLOBAL!!!!  You can set your paces from your backyard, from the trails behind your neighborhood, from a treadmill, or from anywhere in the entire world you choose!

This is also a GORUCK event so all GORUCKERS are encouraged to be a part of this exciting event – and earn your patch!
