2019 BASE CAMP LINDSEY MARCH OF HONOR
The Base Camp Lindsey March of Honor is our annual signature event. It is not only a fundraiser to benefit the construction of Base Camp Lindsey. It is our way of providing insight into the plight of our homeless veterans and to honor all veterans.
This year we will be having three courses. The original 10-mile course and we have added a 5-mile and 1-mile course. There will be competitive levels in the 10- and 5-mile courses. A trophy will be awarded for 1st and 2nd place on these courses. If you wish to compete, you will be required to carry at least a 25-pound rucksack or backpack. These will be weighed at sign-in.
The event takes place on November 9, 2019. The location is 1600 City View, Wichita Falls, TX. Online registration begins on September 1, 2019. There is also an on-site registration for an additional $5.00.
