Applications are open for Flower Mound’s annual Veterans Day Relay Run! Since 2014, the Town of Flower Mound and resident volunteers have honored our veterans with this relay that spans 31.8 miles through Flower Mound. The route takes volunteer runners past every elementary, middle, and high school in town so the students can cheer on the runners. Each runner tackles a one- to two-mile portion of the relay while holding an American flag that’s passed to the next runner as they complete their run.
This year, the run is on Friday, Nov. 10. Registration ends on Sunday, Oct. 15, and chosen runners will be notified of their relay location and times the week of Monday, Oct. 23. There will be a mandatory relay participant meeting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 1, at the Community Activity Center, 1200 Gerault Rd.
