The Wildland Firefighter Remembrance Run

The Wildland Firefighter Foundation will be hosting the Seventh Annual Wildland Firefighter Remembrance Run. The Wildland Firefighter Remembrance Run will be held at the Lava Beds National Monument May 6, 2017.

The Wildland Firefighter Remembrance Run starts at 10 a.m. and offers both 5K walk/run and 10K run races. The races will be followed by a barbecue starting at 11:30 a.m.

The 5k run/walk and 10k run are open to all age groups, and both races will begin at the Lava Beds visitor center. Registration on race day begins at 8 a.m. Participants can register earlier by registering online at http://www.active.com/tulelake-ca/running/distance-running-races/wildland-firefighter-remembrance-run-2017. Registration fees are 30 dollars per person. Race directors ask that anyone attending please carpool whenever possible due to limited parking.

All proceeds go directly to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation, a non-profit organization. These proceeds will help families of firefighters killed in the line of duty and assist injured firefighters and their families. They honor and acknowledge past, present, and future members of the wildland firefighting community, and partner with private and interagency organizations to bring recognition to wildland firefighters.
