- This event has passed.
On August 6, 2011, a CH-47 Chinook helicopter was shot down by enemy fire in Afghanistan. This tragedy resulted in the deaths of 30 active duty military members and 1 military working dog, and left shocked and broken families in its wake. The event is considered the worst loss of life in a single incident during the Afghanistan Campaign.
To celebrate the incredible lives of these fallen heroes and support their families, 31 Miles for 31 Heroes will hold memorial rucks at various locations throughout the world.
This is the first year we will be hosting this event on Catalina Island. Start and Finish will be at the Veterans Memorial Park, 107 Pebbly Beach Rd.
