TEAM USO Still has Entries to the Biggest Marathons, Triathlons and Other Races of 2014
Spring is finally here, and if one of your New Year’s resolutions was to finish a marathon, half-marathon or triathlon, you should be well into the latter part of your final training cycle.
What’s that? You haven’t started training? You haven’t signed up for a race yet? Well have no fear—TEAM USO is here!
With spots still available in the most popular races in the country, TEAM USO can help you select a race, put a fitness plan into place to get you out there in your go-fasters or tenny-runners in no time.
First step? Well, stretch, of course.
Next, visit www.TeamUSO.org/compete and select a race.
You can travel to the Big Apple for the New York City Marathon, swim across the frigid San Francisco Bay in the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon or shout along with your favorite grunts at the Marine Corps Marathon. Whichever race you choose, TEAM USO has an online fundraising tool that makes it easy to send emails to friends and family asking them to support the troops by sponsoring you.
Race with TEAM USO to help make the lives of our brave servicemen and women and their families a little bit easier by providing programs and services through our USO centers worldwide.
