The Run to Remember- Virginia Beach, was conceived by several of the widows of Navy SEALs who were killed in action August 6, 2011. In the midst of their grief, they felt extreme gratitude for the Naval Special Warfare and Virginia Beach communities, well as the communities around the nation that rallied to support them.
The race is at the Military Aviation Museum.
