Memorial Day was just upon us, which means America’s fallen heroes were probably heavy on your heart. While we salute their time of service, we also have many more opportunities to honor our veterans in Branson. Support Vietnam War veterans this summer, and relax at America’s Best Campground in Branson.
Run for a Vet is a 5K and half marathon race, taking place on June 11, 2016, at the Dewey Short Visitors Center. The event is sponsored by Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 913, so proceeds will benefit veterans and help provide necessary resources. There’s no better way to give back to our heroes and achieve a fitness goal at the same time.
The half marathon begins at 6:45 a.m., and the 5K race begins at 7:30 a.m. The course runs through Lakeshore Trail and to State Park Marina on an asphalt surface. This scenic view winds around Table Rock Lake, which will give you plenty of opportunity to admire the beauty of Branson in the summer. The half marathon race loops through this course three times to complete the mileage.
Entry is just $30 for the 5K and $40 for the half marathon. Kids 12 and under may race for $15. Awards will be presented for each race, by gender and age group. Will you be the next champion? Come out and see!
Then rest your legs at ABC Branson. All veterans receive a 10% discount on camping all season long with a credit card, or 15% with a check. Call us today to book your summer vacation.
