About The Barney’s Run For Warriors
Barney’s Run For Warriors is an exciting half marathon race that will take place on November 18, 2023 in Albany, GA. This annual event is in its 11th year and aims to support K9’s for Warriors, a wonderful organization based in Ponte Vedra, Florida. The race proceeds go towards purchasing highly trained service dogs for local veterans, helping them to regain a sense of normalcy in their lives. Additionally, the event aims to raise awareness about the alarming rate of 22 daily suicides among military veterans and works towards stopping this tragic trend.
One of the standout features of Barney’s Run For Warriors is that it offers USATF certified courses for all participants. Whether you choose the 13.1-mile half marathon, the 10K, or the 5K, you can enjoy running on nearly flat, well-marked, and paved courses that wind through beautiful Albany neighborhoods. And the best part? You can even bring your furry friend along for the 1-mile, 5K, or 10K races!
Albany, GA is not only the host city for this incredible event but also a place of interest itself. Known for its rich history and vibrant culture, Albany offers a delightful backdrop for runners. The weather in November is usually pleasant, with average temperatures ranging from 65°F to 75°F. This creates ideal running conditions and ensures participants can enjoy the race to the fullest.
Join us at Barney’s Run For Warriors and help make a difference in the lives of our veterans and the dogs who support them. Don’t forget to register by November 5th to secure your commemorative t-shirt, and remember to size up as they are a cotton/poly blend.
