A letter from Race Director David Clark:
Hello American Heroes Runners,
Thank you for another amazing year. It was hot!! But you all persevered and finished well. As I promised at the race start,
we are going to push the envelope for our 5th year in 2014. We are setting a goal of 343 runners (one for
each FDNY fire fighter lost on 9/11). We will also be recruiting for
members of our armed services to make a large presence during the run in 2014.
We are committing to you to have the following for next year:
Engraved Medals for events (except 5k)
USA Belt Buckle for anyone doing 100 miles in 24 Hour Race
Unique 50 Mile Medal for anyone completing 50 miles in 24 Hour or 9 Hour 11 Minute Run
Unique "Ultra Marathoner" medal for anyone going longer than 26.2 miles in 24 Hour or 9 Hour 11 Minute Run
Finisher's Certificates for all finishers
We are also changing the start format to offer a greater tribute to the timeline of the day and a more ceremonial way to honor all those lost on 9/11 (details below).
We would like to invite you to help in the process of making this the
best event of its kind. So please invite your friends- invite your church groups, co workers and commit to going farther than you did last year.
Thank you and God Bless the USA!!

Please join us for this special day and celebration of the greatest nation on earth. We wish to honor our troops, firefighters and law enforcement officers all of whom put their lives on the line to protect us.
This run is a celebration of freedom and the USA!
No politics; just patriotism.
Join us on September 12th and 13th, 2014 for a run/walk around Rogers Grove Park in Longmont, CO.
The track is approx. 1 mile long and loops around the lake and park. You can walk one lap in support of the cause, or run as long or far as you desire.
We will have a professional timing company on hand tracking all the miles for the Solo and Team runners. The event will be "chip timed" and the results will be posted in real time during the event. (Scoring provided by MCM Timing and Results, LLC)
The course will be open for 9 hours and 11 minutes.
