    RALEIGH, N.C. – The Always Ready, Ready Team of the North Carolina National Guard (NCNG) celebrated Army Forces Day by hosting the 5th Annual Minuteman Muster here May 20, 2017.

    Approximately 370 competitors, which included service members and civilians, competed in one of the two premier competitive races, a 5K or 8K run/walk, and select competitors competed in two-team-competitive events, the High School Team Challenge or the Chief’s Challenge, during the abnormally hot day on the western edge of the City of Oaks.

    “This is an important event for the NCNG. It allows us to make a connection with the community”, said Army Brig. Gen. Allen Boyette, the NCNG’s Assistant Adjutant General for Sustainment. “This years event supports and fundraises for the NCNG Museum and Learning Center of Excellence to capture our history for future generations.”

    The event provided an opportunity for the competitors to learn about the contributions the Tar Heel service members have made throughout time by visiting the “History Machine”, a mobile history-telling trailer.

    “This event provides an education, advertising opportunity to explain the overall purpose and existence of the NCNG and its history from 1636 to the present,” said Army Lt. Col. John VanHook, the NCNG’s Command Historian.

    The winners of the 5K race were Josiah Ruhl with a time of 20:31 minutes and Tina Morrison with a time of 21:06 minutes. The winners of the 8K race were Michael Crumpton with a time of 28:45 minutes and Susan Krizek with a time of 37:42 minutes.
