The USO, the North Carolina Veterans of Foreign Wars and Bushwhack Adventure Racing will host the N.C. National Guard's Minuteman Muster Race on Armed Forces Day.
All proceeds will go to the N.C. National Guard's Education Foundation.
“The NC Minuteman Muster is a large scale community outreach initiative, for citizens of Wake and surrounding counties, designed to demonstrate the collaborative, multi-agency domestic response mission of the NC National Guard and its many Emergency Response partner agencies,” Bushwhack Adventure Racing explains.
There will be three races — including an 8k run, Duathlon and an Adventure Race — that begin at 8 a.m. at the National Guard headquarters in Raleigh.
Participants must pre-register, and registration is open through the Bushwhack Adventure Racing website.
Armed Forces Day, which will be celebrated this year on May 18, honors Americans serving in the military.
