2022 Armed Forces Day Monument to Monument 5K Run to Glory

WATERTOWN, NY – The City of Watertown and the Watertown Family YMCA will host the first-ever Monument to Monument 5K Run to Glory. North Country residents are invited to demonstrate their support of the 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry) by running alongside active duty, reserve, National Guard, and retired service members.

The run is a revised version of the former Memorial to Monument Run last held in 2019. This event offers the community an opportunity where civilians and active and retired military can run side-by-side, acting as a symbol of the connection the military community has with its North Country neighbors.
