2014 Boilermaker Shadow Run to Take Place After All
They are unstoppable. And, to prove it, the troops stationed at Camp Buerhring in Kuwait will participate in a 2014 Boilermaker Shadow Run after all.
The race, originally scheduled to take place in July, was cancelled because of extremely high temperatures in the region. It has now been tentatively rescheduled for Saturday, August 2, 2014.
In a written release First Lieutenant Jeffery Ruso of the 42nd Combat Air Brigade said, "We are thankful of the USO's willingness to put on this event."
USO Center Manager Tiffany Banks added that they are excited and said they "...are hopeful for a large turnout from folks on base."
Because of the high summertime temperatures in Kuwait the 15K is expected to start at 5:09am. The 5K will start approximately five minutes later.
