The All All American Marathon is coming up on Sunday, March 25. Along with the All American Marathon there will also be the Mike-to-Mike Half Marathon and The All American 5K. These three races take place every year at Fort Bragg. The race is put on by MWR which is the welfare and recreation organization for the Army.
All of the proceeds go back into the organization for their programs, gyms, child and youth services, and for soldiers and their family members. The race is in honor of service members and to honor those who serve and those who have given everything.
The Mike-to-Mike Half Marathon is named after a soldier symbol on Fort Bragg, Iron Mike. This half marathon runs past the original Iron Mike located in downtown Fayetteville and finishes at the main post parade field running past the duplicate Iron Mike. He’s a symbol of soldier’s strength and power, being iron strong.
Runners who would like to participate but are unable to make it to Fayetteville on race day may still sign up and run anytime and anywhere that is convenient to them. More information for the Virtual Race is available on their website.
