Virtual Run: Dale Larson's Challenge

July Finisher's Medal

Dale Larson's Challenge for July is a memorial run to honor Dale, a Marine Father, Volunteer, and Runner who passed away on June 1, 2020. Dale ran dozens of half marathons and this is his challenge to you this month. Complete 13.1 miles for your event in honor and memory of Dale. If you can’t run a half marathon, choose a distance that works for you. Dale’s preferred race was a half marathon to which he maintained that running 13.1 miles was only half crazy! Participate virtually with other military and Veteran supporters and Veterans around the globe.

YOU choose the fitness activity and distance (13.1 miles if you can), whether biking, running, walking, or your favorite exercise equipment! Start slowly; add distance for each consecutive virtual run. For a “virtual run” there is no travel involved; you’ll complete your activity in your own community, your local gym, or even your own backyard.
