Code Pink Interrupts Wounded Warrior Run in DC

The Army 10-miler was held today in Washington DC.

NBC Washington reported:

30,000 people were expected to compete in the 27th annual Army Ten-Miler on Sunday. This year saw the introduction of a new start and finish line for the runners. The race began on route 110 and finish in the Pentagon North Parking Lot.

In between, runners crossed into Washington, D.C. via the Memorial Bridge, circled around the Watergate complex and skirted the south side of the National Mall before doubling back and recrossing the Potomac via the George Mason Memorial Bridge.

Code Pink played spoiler at the annual event.

Rep. Allen West reported this on his Facebook page:

Just finished running Army Ten Miler…

and unofficial time was 1 hr 29 mins and change, great seeing many old friends and former bosses. However, what struck me as shameful was Code Pink being out on the run course protesting. There were many Wounded Warriors doing the wheelchair race and running with their prosthetic devices. Perhaps Code Pink does not realize that those “Army Strong” men and women make it possible for them to stand on Independence Ave and demean their service, sacrifice, and commitment…….Land of the Free because we are the Home of the Brave!” Army Strong!
