2015 Patriots Medal

Step up and run 8K + 13.1!
The Run for the Dream includes two exciting road races – an 8K (4.97 miles) on Saturday and a half marathon (13.1 miles) on Sunday.  In 2011, several runners self-imposed the challenge to run both races, totaling 18.07 miles in a two-day period.  This impressive display of initiative, determination and spirit is best embodied by the Colonial patriots, the men and women of the American Colonies who banded together and overthrew an empire.
