'Run For The Red, White & Blue' This Saturday At Chennault Museum

Chennault Aviation & Military Museum will be holding the 2021  Run For The Red, White & Blue 5K & 1K Run/Walk this weekend.  The event will take place at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 29, 2021, at the Museum, 701 Kansas Lane, Monroe.

The event is held annually to support the work of the Museum. Free tours will take place during and after the 5K/1K events. Visitors will also be able to see the planes at the Museum’s new Aviation Park & Pavilion. Participants can sign up to honor our active service members and veterans, and to remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

A group of ten or more race participants (families/friends/organization/businesses) can join together to run/walk as a team.
The 5K/1K ends with participants running through the Flags of Freedom. This year individuals, families, businesses, and/or organizations can sponsor one of the fifty flag. A sign with your information and message will be placed at the base of the flag.

All race proceeds from the event benefit CAMM and its veterans’ outreach programs.

To register, go to or stop by the Museum. Additional information can be found at, on Facebook, or by contacting .
