We're on a Mission

Be a part of wear blue: run to remember's signature national event

Every Memorial Day we invite runners and walkers to take part in a nationwide event honoring every member of the American military who has laid down his or her life for this country. It's fairly simple. Participants pledge to commit the miles they run or walk in honor of a fallen soldier.

Here's how it works

1. Choose your path

Join a meet-up or local chapter 

Local chapters will host community-wide Memorial Day events, which feature marked running routes, a shared meal, and American flags placed into the ground as a visual reminder of the lives sacrificed. wear blue: run to remember provides runners and walkers with the names of fallen service members to honor with their steps.

OR Run Individually

Every step counts. Take your mission into the streets. Simply move on to Step 2 and commit to record your miles by registering. At registration you will supply the name of your honoree.  If needed, wear blue: run to remember can provide names of fallen service members to honor with their steps.
