Mighty Maysan Marathon

Some news from our friends at Hill Country Running Company:

On Monday April 20, 2009, soldiers from the 2nd Battalion 7th Cavalry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division (based out of Ft Hood, TX) will hold the Mighty Maysan Half and Full Marathon in Iraq. This event will help build Esprit de Corps, camaraderie amongst the soldiers in the unit and provide significant relief to the soldiers from the stresses of combat as they complete the distance on a 1 mile circuit in their combat base.

This will mark the 318th consecutive day of combat operations for 2-7 CAV and nearly 100 soldiers will step to the line and run the Mighty Maysan Half/Full Marathon in Iraq. Back home in Austin, Texas, Hill Country Running Company will host a run in conjunction with the Mighty Maysan Marathon in tribute to the troops around the world who protect America's way of life and each runner's freedom to explore the beautiful Country in which we live.

To show your support of the soldiers of 2-7 CAV please come out and join the staff from Hill Country Running Company on their run Monday morning at 9:00 am. Distances will range from 6 to 26.2 miles.

For more information please contact Jamie Cleveland at or the staff of HCRC at (512) 294-2866, 215 S Lamar Blvd Suite E, Austin, TX 78704.
