The Battleship 12k is always an emotional race for me. Running for those that have sacrificed so much for our freedom almost stops me in my tracks. Running for my Pawpaw who was a POW in WWII means more than I can ever say. Being able to recognize the Veterans running by the different color of their bibs and hearing and expressing thanks to them is an amazing experience. This is seriously one of my most favorite races that I am so thankful I get to run every year! The course is mostly flat (there are a few bridges you run across) and fast. Finishing in front of the Battleship is awesome!!! The race shirt is always so soft and I love how all the runners' names are written on the back. And the finisher medal is amazing every year! This is a race that even everyone should run!!!
