The mission of Run Down The Demons™ is to address issues surrounding suicides, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other mental health disorders related to veterans, active service members, and/or their family members by providing education, raising awareness and providing resources to those we serve.

Watch the 2016 5k Rewind Video

Our 5k event course is designed to be mentally and physically challenging – similar to experiencing the “unknowns” associated with PTSD. The location of all obstacles are shared with you; however, the TYPE of obstacle that you will encounter is “unknown.” Don’t worry though, our obstacles aren’t as physically taxing compared to other races and you are provided with the option to skip an obstacle if necessary.

Statistical boards with information about veteran-related mental health complications are strategically placed throughout the course. We highly recommend that you read and remember this information because you will be quizzed on the information at one of our Mental Checkpoints. The location of these checkpoints are undisclosed purposely to provide additional experiences of the “unknown.”

The goal of this event is to raise awareness about PTSD, suicide prevention, and mitigating the stigma associated with these issues within our military community. We aim to provide you with a physically, mentally, and an emotionally difficult course with your safety in mind. Experiencing PTSD and the “unknowns” associated with it, creates frustration and discourse in the lives of those who suffer from it. Coming together to provide the proper resources and support elements is crucial to this healing process and we need you now, more than ever!

We look forward to seeing you at our THIRD annual event of April 1, 2017!
