About the Race

For its 10th year, Pound the Ground challenges you through the terrain of Mendon Ponds Park- and every step you take supports the men, women, and families served by Veterans Outreach Center of Rochester. Choose from one of our USATF road race certified courses for 10K & 5K runners, or a 5K Walk along the course through the beautiful park grounds.


Runners who are veterans or active duty can join the 5K Branch Battle competition.
The winning branch will be recognized on the Golden Boot Award, kept on display at VOC.

Register to Run/Walk/Fundraise: 

Register to be part of the fun on race day. Bring your friends and register as a Team, running is always more fun as a group! 

You can support the mission of VOC by becoming a fundraiser on the registration page or work off line by downloading this flyer.  Bring the money to the race or to our office.
