USO of Metropolitan New York presents a Battle of the Branches July 24-August 2! Participate in a virtual half-marathon and 5K to benefit the National Guard and Active Duty military who are providing COVID-19 relief and other support in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
In the spirit of fun competition between the six service branches of our U.S. Armed Forces, pick a team: Team Army, Team Marines, Team Navy, Team Air Force, Team Space Force, or Team Coast Guard. Whether you’re an active duty service member, veteran, family member, friend or supporter, you can walk, run, and raise funds for the glory of your favorite branch! The branch with the most participants will win bragging rights for the next year.
There is no cost to participate. Register as a runner or walker, help fund-raise, and start training. On or around July 20, they'll send your participation instructions and runner's bib. Between July 24-August 2, complete your race, record your time, and submit to the BOTB events team!
