About this Virtual Run: August of 2021 marks the 2500th anniversary of the Battle of Thermopylae, where against overwhelming odds, 300 Spartans and a small force of Greeks held off an invading force of more than 300,000 Persian soldiers for three days, in what has become the most infamous last stand in history (and the inspiration for the movie “300”). Join the Prepare for Glory virtual race and run, walk, step, bike, or swim whenever and wherever you want to earn this glorious 4″ Spartan helmet medal, with attached spear, shield, and sword charms.
Matching Shirts: Add a Prepare For Glory shirt to your registration for an additional $20 ($18 for Club VS members). Black colored shirts with bronzed metallic decals are 100% pre-shrunk cotton, available in adult sizes S-XXL:
