Thank you to everyone who came out for the Armed Forces Half Marathon and Freedom 5K in #DTJax!
About the Event: The 18th Annual USO Armed Forces Half Marathon and Freedom 5K was on Saturday, October 16th, 2021 at the Riverfront Plaza. This was the final year for the half-marathon portion of this event as they transition into the “Tri-Bridge Challenge” next year.
The mission of the USO Armed Forces Half Marathon & Freedom 5K is to strengthen the bond between the civilian and military communities, promote sound physical health and fitness, and raise funds for the Greater Jacksonville Area USO in support of all five branches of the military, including the Florida National Guard, and their family members.
