Run For The Wall XXII 2010 Day 1: Rancho Cucamonga, CA to Williams, AZ

Finally, the day has arrived for the start of Run For The Wall 2010, our 22nd year in a row!  The day began clear and full of excitement and anticipation.

Both the Central and Southern Routes participated in a combined opening ceremonies.  The local fire department performed color guard duties for us.  We had the Pledge of Allegiance followed by the National Anthem.  We said our good-byes and well-wishes to our friends from the Southern Route and will reunite with them in DC.

The weather for our travels all day was perfect.  Even our lunch stop at Needles, CA was under 100 degrees.  That’s the first time I’ve ever been in Needles when the temperature was under 100.  As this is our longest travel day (395 miles), I always think it’s good to have it first when I’m the most rested.

The American Legion Post 13 of Williams, Arizona provided us, once again, with a terrific dinner of turkey, brisket, beans, corn on the cob, and  many other items.

Tomorrow, our journey takes us to Gallup, New  Mexico.

  1. Hey Brother,

    I pray that God keeps each of you safe in your travels. I’ll be joining up in Hurricane again this year. Can’t wait to visit with old friends from runs past! See you all soon!

  2. AWESOME….Be safe, we are praying for you!

  3. Thank you for keeping us updated. I will be joining the Run at Wentzville Mo. This year I will only be able to ride for one day and will turn back at Corydon. I am sorry that I will miss Rainelle.
