We were curious why they chose Thunder Road as their race and asked them a few questions:
Q: If it’s not classified info, can you share with us where you all are
A: I cannot give you our location, as it is an undisclosed location in
Q: What function or duty are you or this group assigned while out of
A: The majority of our group are responsible for funding base
operations and support for the Combined Joint Operations Area – Afghanistan.
Basically, we provide/execute funding for the war in Afghanistan.
Q: Anyone from Charlotte or the Carolinas on the Shadow Run roster?
A: We do have one runner from South Carolina, currently assigned to our location. The rest are scattered across the U.S. from WV, TX, AL, CO, VA, NY, and ME.
Q: How did you come about choosing Thunder Road? How much running do you all get to/have to do over there?
A: We do a fair amount of running on our off duty time and just thought we would send
the request for support to your race for consideration.
