The Army Marathon is proud to unveil the design of the 2015 Finisher’s Medal. The medal for all races on March 1, 2015 will feature a three dimensional M48 Patton Main Battle Tank, the main battle tank for the United States during the Vietnam War.
The design was created in cooperation with the historical staff at National Mounted Warfare Foundation in Killeen, Texas to honor the service of Vietnam veterans and begins a new series of medals for The Army Marathon featuring main battle tanks of the US military. The Army Marathon will continue to pay homage to our military members and over 21 million veterans in part with this new series of medals.
“The Army Marathon was created to honor our military folks and their families, and especially to help raise money and awareness for the many organizations who serve these heroes,” said Ed Bandas, president of The Army Marathon. “Our goal is to be the largest marathon in the country that directly honors the service and sacrifice of our Vietnam veterans as well as all of our Heroes that have served this country faithfully.”
The marathon, produced in partnership with Baylor Scott & White Health and Central Texas College as well as other generous sponsors has drawn over 2000 runners, with a course starting in Killeen, TX near Fort Hood and ending in the nearby city of Temple, following a 26.2-mile course through Central Texas. Runners have come from almost every state and several different countries to run in this charitable event.
