About the Race

For its 11th 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. Come out to be challanged by our USATF road race certified courses for 5K runners, or a 5K Walk along the course through the beautiful park grounds. We have suspended the 10K for 2019.

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.
