WingMan 10K

On 21 July 2008, our nation lost six of its military heroes in a B-52 crash off the coast of Guam. One of those heroes was my best friend, Joshua Shepherd, who I called my WingMan and who commissioned with me just a few years earlier. At his funeral, several of his friends committed to completing the Air Force Marathon the next year in his honor and from then forward, every year I have tried to honor his memory by both doing something positive and by running a race on the anniversary week of his passing. In 2014 I combined those ideas and became the race director for a new ORRRC race the WingMan 10K one that I hope will honor him and the values he taught me: be a friend to everyone, chase your goals, and never leave someone behind. I hope that you will join us and bring a friend to our race to remember a great father, brother, son, and most of all a great friend, as well as all of those whom have given their life serving our great nation!

About the event
From the organiser

On 21 July 2008, our nation lost six of its military heroes in a B-52 crash off the coast of Guam. One of those heroes was my best friend, Joshua Shepherd, who I called my WingMan and who commissioned with me just a few years earlier. At his funeral, several of his friends committed to completing the Air Force Marathon the next year in his honor and from then forward, every year I have tried to honor his memory by both doing something positive and by running a race on the anniversary week of his passing. In 2014 I combined those ideas and became the race director for a new ORRRC race the WingMan 10K one that I hope will honor him and the values he taught me: be a friend to everyone, chase your goals, and never leave someone behind. I hope that you will join us and bring a friend to our race to remember a great father, brother, son, and most of all a great friend, as well as all of those whom have given their life serving our great nation!

What you need to know about Running Events

Running is the world’s most accessible sport. Park runs, colour runs, 5k, 10k, half marathons, marathons and ultras — all you need is a pair of trainers and off you go. Running events are hugely popular on Let’s Do This and it’s a sociable sport, so get some friends involved and achieve something extraordinary.

If you’re starting small, the 5k and 10k events are great fun and definitely worth doing even if you’re training for a bigger challenge further down the line. Getting used to the atmosphere of an event is important. You’re so much more likely to hit a better time if there’s a crowd cheering you on, people in fancy dress and a big celebration at the finish line.
