All proceeds benefit the Guard’s Family Readiness Groups and the importance of our spouses and family members who volunteer to take care of the home front (and other spouses and families) when our Soldiers and Airmen are deployed, on annual training or conducting various missions around the world.

Show time is 5 a.m., with a warm-up beginning at 5:45 a.m. The 2K will start at 6 a.m., followed by the 5K taking off at 6:05 a.m.

Dri-fit shirts are available to the first 2,400 registered finishers and are available in adult and children’s sizes. Refreshments will be available and awards will be given to the top three male and female finishers in nine categories, including the new addition of a Stroller Division and top three boys and girls in the 2K Youth Division.

Interested runners can register at the Guam National Guard’s Readiness Center in Barrigada, the Air Guard facilities on Andersen Air Force Base, Goody’s Sporting Goods in Upper Tumon and Mark’s General Merchandise in Anigua for $10 per person or $35 for a family of 4.

Volunteers from our Guam National Guard Family Readiness Groups will be out in full force to provide drinks at the water stops along the route.
