Many of the attorneys at Berry Law are former and retired military personnel who understand what it means to serve our nation. Military service often comes with unique sacrifices and life experiences that shape men and women across our country and are formative to their personal growth. As a consequence, these experiences can sometimes leave Veterans feeling lost or without purpose when they return.
That is why we are proud sponsors of this year’s 6th Annual Big Red Challenge, whose mission is to provide support for Veterans in their transition to civilian life through challenge, service, and community. The Big Red Challenge is more than just a race: it is a 7K obstacle course designed by the Marine Corps League Cornhusker Detachment 370 and Ironhide Construction, Inc. The course features more than 20 obstacles such as Ranger Up, Under Siege, Tarzan, and Under Fire.
This race brings together servicemembers, Veterans, and civilians to challenge themselves and celebrate the warrior spirit. Each obstacle is specifically designed to simulate an actual combat skill, resulting in a course that will both push your limits and give a sense of the type of training our service members experience.
The Big Red Challenge Expo begins at 7:00 am on June 8, 2019, in the Railyard (350 Canopy St, Lincoln, NE 68508). The 7K Elite costs $80 for registration and will begin at 9:10 am, while the 7K Non-Competitive run will begin at 9:20 am with a registration cost of $65. There is a Lil Red Challenge which is roughly a mile long and begins at 8:15 am for children between five and eleven years old, and the cost for registration is $20. Registration for Veterans, Reservists, and Active Duty members who wish to do the 7K Non-Competitive is $20.
Registration opened in early 2019, and there will be a $5-10 increase in registration cost after May 16th.
All runners will get a t-shirt and dog tags as well as a finisher medal. There will be an Expo before and after the race, which is a great opportunity to get to know other Veterans and learn about veteran organizations in the community. The Expo will run until 1:00 pm.
