WASHINGTON, DC, April 24, 2018– The Defense Credit Union Council (DCUC) proudly sponsored the DCUC Kuwait 10 Mile Freedom Run/Walk hosted at Camp Arifjan and Camp Buehring.

The race brings all forces together from Sailors, Marines, Airmen, and soldiers but also includes international forces such as Brits, Aussies, French, and Canadians and is ran in conjunction with the Cherry Blossom races in Germany, Washington, DC, and Sacramento, CA. 

The weather was comfortably cool with overcast skies during the race with a reported six hundred and fifteen participants who appreciated the opportunity to take part in this special event and earn the sponsor-provided participant t-shirt.

The winner of the two combined races was Army Staff Sergeant Joe Kitchell with a time of 1:02:24. The Morale Welfare and Recreation (MWR) reported an outstanding turnout to the event and looks forward to continue the partnership with DCUC for years to come and allow the sponsoring of our troops abroad.
