Get everything you need to know, right here, about what Operation Valor is doing to help our nation's veterans!
Over the past 4+ years that we’ve been doing this, one of the strongest pieces of feedback we’ve gotten is that people would LOVE to participate, but, they just can’t physically make it out to Glen Rose to join us in person. Hence…our Virtual Run was created back in 2016 to give everyone a way

Historically, we've done just the one event, in late October with Spartan Race to honor and pay tribute to Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield. And, over the past 4 years we've grown this beyond even my wildest dreams...thanks to you all!
As a 100% true, all-volunteer organization, there's a very direct and linear relationship between how much work we put in and how much we're therefore able to help our nation's veterans. With that thought in mind, we are..."expanding"...things a bit for 2018!
This year we will be doing THREE events. We will, naturally, continue to do the Fallen Heroes Memorial Run in late October with Spartan Race to honor Chris and Chad. We will also be doing an event in late June around the anniversary of Operation Red Wings to honor those men. And we'll also be doing an event in early August to honor and pay respects to the men lost on Extortion 17.
Each of these events will have a corresponding Virtual Run AND a corresponding Fitness competition! And, with each being different and distinct, each will have it's own artwork, graphics, tshirts and finisher's medals.
Please see our events pages for all the details!!
