Marine runs 161 miles across Wyoming to honor servicewomen
RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) — A Marine is running 161 miles (259 kilometers) across Wyoming to honor the 161 U.S. military women killed in the line of duty since 9/11.
The Rawlins Times reports Marine Pamela Torres is expected to end the run in Rawlins on Tuesday — a week after beginning the journey in Cheyenne.
Torres trained for a year before starting the Valor Run.
She says the elevation and weather have been challenging but running through the wide-open landscape has been enjoyable.
Sinclair and Rawlins are planning celebrations as Torres reaches the towns Tuesday.
