After you have grabbed a quick bite, we invite you to walk to receive your flag and prepare for our Circle of Remembrance. If you requested a flag, it will be set aside for you. In our pre-race Circle of Remembrance, volunteers will be invited to call out the name of fallen service members, and then line mile 2 of the race course with full-sized American flags, bearing the names of fallen American heroes. The wear blue Mile is a chance to impact over 5,000 runners with the inspiration of America's military. Volunteers should expect to close the day with wear blue by 10:00 am.
We are still in need of volunteers. Please invite a friend, family member, or local volunteer community group to join you on the Mile. https://www.wearblueruntoremember.org/prairiefiremarathon
