Revolutionary Run 2014

ProRangers Participate in the Valley Forge Revolutionary Run 5-Mile Race

This year marks the fourth occasion that ProRangers have participated in the Revolutionary Run located at Valley Forge National Historical Site.  Almost a thousand runners come to this park every year to take part in a grueling five mile run. The reason I refer to the race as "grueling" is because of the many hills that make the course difficult.

Thankfully, we were fortunate enough to have beautiful sunny weather. The scenic course encompasses significant historic landmarks which include: Von Steuben Statue, Patriots of African American Descent Monument, National Memorial Arch, and Gen Wayne Statue.   

ProRanger Jay Copper receiving his award!

The ProRangers finished the race strong and with great times.  We all placed within the top ten of our age/gender group. ProRanger Jay Copper received an award for placing third of his age/gender group.  We thank the Valley Forge staff for having us and we hope to keep this a ProRanger tradition for the future cohorts. Physical fitness is key to being a successful NPS Ranger.

Stay tuned for experiences from the SLETP 14-06 class!

Good luck to everyone in the academy and stay focused! 

Until next time!
