Fort Meade To Hold Joint Service Run Friday

Early risers can check out the event featuring top members of the military.

Fort Meade will host its annual Joint Service Spring Run on Friday morning, featuring leaders from cyber commands at the installation.

All service members and their family members are invited to the three-mile run/walk, which serves as one of the top spirit-building events of the year.

Garrison leaders said they hopes to see 2,000 participants in the event, which begins at the McGlachlin Parade Field.

Participants in Friday's event will include Rear Adm. Margaret DeLuca Klein, the Chief of Staff of U.S. Cyber Command and Vice Adm. Michael Rogers, Commander of the U.S. 10th Fleet and the U.S. Fleet Cyber Command.

In a column appearing in Sound Off!, Garrison Command Sgt. Maj. Charles Smith said the theme of this year's spring run is "resiliency." He said the run would emphasize the five key areas of strength outlined by the Army's Comprehensive Soldier Fitness Program: physical, emotional, social, family and spiritual.

"The Joint Service Run is a great way to demonstrate physical, social and even family dimensions of strength during this rousing, postwide event," Smith said.
