ND Guard to host 14K run to honor fallen soldiers

DEVILS LAKE, N.D. — The North Dakota National Guard is hosting a 14-kilometer run or walk event in Devils Lake on Saturday to honor the 14 Guard soldiers who were killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Guard says registration for the event begins at 7:30 a.m.

The Guard hosted a 12k run last year to honor the first 12 North Dakota Guardsmen killed while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. The distance was extended this year to honor two soldiers who were killed in Afghanistan last December.
