Registration Open May 28 – Aug 2, 2021 Virtual Event Runs May 28 – Aug 25 2021 Award Packet Pick Up – Aug 25 Register now at: https://www.cvent.com/d/mjqb9m/5C?dvce=2 Then join “USO Okinawa Trek” Facebook Group for your checkpoints, maps, and points-of-interest.

ABOUT THE EVENT: This is an all-summer event! The island of Okinawa spans approximately 80 miles, north to south, and is full of cultural interest, natural beauty, and historical importance. Join USO Okinawa as we walk, hike, or run across the length of the island while learning about this rich environment! Registration includes a 2021 USO Okinawa Trek T-shirt, a swag-bag, and for the FIRST 100 REGISTRANTS ONLY: a beautiful, locally made, blown glass medal.

TWO WAYS TO PARTICIPATE: VIRTUAL OR IN-PERSON

VIRTUAL: Virtual participants can log their miles as they “hike” to each of the four main checkpoints while clicking to learn about points of interest along the way. Virtual participants have until August 25 to complete all four checkpoints. The first three male and female finishers who submit their completed Checkpoint maps on the Facebook group page will receive special prizes. You can also complete your miles in any combination of virtual/in-person. Just make sure to track those miles! And follow command guidance for any outdoor activities.

IN-PERSON: For those craving BIG adventure and want to walk or hike the main route in person, there will be a special category of awards for those participants. Upon registration, USO Okinawa will email you the detailed map, safety advisories, and provide information from those who have made the trek in person. The in-person challenge can be completed anytime in 2021. Wear your swag with pride whenever you finish the challenge! To participate in person: please email okinwawaprograms@uso.org to receive directions.

PARTICIPATION: Participants will post their progress on our USO Okinawa Trek Facebook page. USO Okinawa will make random drawings from the comments and photos of those who post times and updates! The more entries, the better chance of winning.

SPECIAL NOTE: US Memorial Day is May 31 and Okinawa Memorial Day is 23 June. We will take time to honor the importance of these days on our social media page.

AWARD PACKETS: Packets for both virtual and in-person registrants will be available for pick up on August 25 at USO Foster. We cannot mail the packets. The awards ceremony will be announced at a later date.

LET’S DO THIS! Challenge your friends, invite your unit, get your crew or family involved, get active, and learn a little bit more about this incredible island on which we live!
