USO of Metropolitan New York presents Battle of the Branches! Join us for a virtual half-marathon and 5K to benefit our National Guard and Active Duty military providing COVID-19 relief and other support in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. In the spirit of fun competition between the six service branches of our U.S. Armed Forces, we’re asking you to pick a team: Team Army, Team Marines, Team Navy, Team Air Force, Team Space Force, or Team Coast Guard. Whether you’re an active duty service member, veteran, family member, friend or supporter, you can walk, run, and raise funds for the glory of your favorite branch! The branch with the most participants will win bragging rights for the next year.
