On this day we ask that you give up all personal awards and instead wear the names of four fallen heroes on your race bib. You will carry them through the race course and at the finish you will ring a bell one time for each of them to signify on this day that they have been remembered.We encourage you to look up their names online and write a thank you in their online guest books for this will let their families know that their hero has not been forgotten.
