Throughout the 13 years of the Vietnam War, 9 million brave Americans earned the title of Veteran.

Tragically 58,000 Americans made the ultimate sacrifice, and 1500 are still unaccounted for.

There are 6 million Vietnam Veterans still living among us and today we honor their service and all that they have done for America.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Happy St. Patrick's Day! ❤🌈🍀

Our Story

Participants have a choice of two distances, a 10 nautical mile (11.5 miles) and a 3 nautical mile (3.45 miles) distance. The 10 nautical mile event is a point to point race, which begins at historic Fort Sheridan (Army) and ends at Foss Park, just North of Naval Station Great Lakes. The 3 nautical mile event takes place on the McClory Bike Path and ends at Foss Park, just North of Naval Station Great Lakes. Both courses offer runners a unique glimpse into beautiful scenic vistas of the North Shore as well as the magnificence of Illinois’ great military encampments. Directly following the races, participants and their families along with sponsors and community partners are invited to partake in an array of activities and festivities in the finish area at Foss Park.

Thank you to our partners at Fort 2 Base Race for making us the designated sponsor for this year’s race, and thank you to everyone who participated in support of our mission this past weekend! - #GetHeadstrong #MentalHealth
Congratulations to the winners of yesterday's RRCA Illinois State Championship the Fort 2 Base Race . Special thanks to Central RRCA Central Region Director Sue Brown-Nickerson and Illinois State Rep Doug Pitchford for representing the RRCA on race day. Doug shared this recap from on-site "The 10 Nautical Mile Run was the 2021 Illinois RRCA Open Championship race with runners starting in Fort Sheridan and passing by Great Lakes Naval Base before finishing at Foss Park outside the naval base. Nearly 1,000 runners enjoyed the beautiful course, while practicing social distancing, a staggered start, and mask wearing pre-and post-run. Special thanks go out to Race Director Beth Salinger and her staff for bringing back in-person running back to Chicagoland."
Thank you to Beth and all the volunteers for a safe and well organized race.
Congratulations to all the participants! My Sistars and I had a blast volunteering and so did our daughters.
A couple of our #KidsRank Pride members had an opportunity to root runners on at the Fort 2 Base Race! Our volunteers provide hydration and motivation to hundreds of runners! Well done guys!
#KidsRank loves supporting awesome local organizations and events! Check out Fort 2 Base Race for information on a great military themed running event. Who knows? You might even see some of your favorite Kids Rank staff members volunteering.
Had a great 4th of July
Sporting the gear! #fort2base
Is there a special rate at the hotel again this year? That was really convenient to be able to pick up my packet there the night before and not have to drive 2hrs to the starting line. And to be able to shower before driving home :-)
