**Please note that The 1LT Gwilym Newman Memorial Run is now only virual.**

Valhalla Running is proud to host a 10K, 5K, and 1K run in honor of 1LT Gwilym Newman. 24, of Waldorf, Md.; assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, Fort Hood, Texas; died April 12 in Tarmiyah, Iraq, of wounds sustained from enemy small-arms fire while on dismounted patrol. Newman dreamed of being an Army doctor, his wife said, and planned to begin physician’s assistant studies upon returning from Iraq, then continue to medical school. 1LT Newman is survived by his wife Samantha and son Gwilym Alexander.

This trail run promises to be an amazing route that will take you back to nature! You will begin behind Hula Hut in Little Elm, TX on the beautiful lake trail. This is an out and back course. If you have never ran the lake trail in Little Elm, you are missing out.

Proceeds from the race will go to Wear Blue Run To Remember. They are a non-profit running community that honors the service and sacrifice of the American Military.
