Sharing an event from a fellow Magnificent Bastard…
My name is Jason Mosel and I was in 2/4 from 2003-2007 WPNS Company second platoon. I wanted to reach out because I am going to be holding a running event in honor of the Marines from 2/4 that were KIA from WWII, Vietnam, and the War on Terror. Here is the link to the Facebook event which is being held on Sat, July 30, 2022 in Vermont.
The event is a last runner standing format. In a typical LRS format, there is a 4.1-mile, flattish course that runners need to complete and be back at the start line to do it again in 1 hour. The race continues until there is only one runner left. The event that I am putting together is a 1-mile course with 300 feet of elevation gain. The runners will have 20 minutes to complete the course and get back to the start line to do it again until there is one runner left.
Each lap that the runners do will be dedicated to a fallen Marine from the battalion. I am holding this event in a small town in Vermont called Corinth.
I wanted to reach out to let the association know about this event and see if you would be interested in promoting the event to the community.
My main purpose of holding this event is to not only honor our brothers that we lost while we were in the Marines, but also those that we lost throughout the history of the battalion. Please let me know what you think and if you have any questions, please let me know.
**Please note that the 2/4 Association is not in any way associated with this event.
