East Coast Route

From West Point to Dallas: 2,100 Miles

With great respect and reverence, the East Coast route of the Relay begins at West Point Cemetery within the nation’s Military Academy and continues into downtown Manhattan visiting the historic 9/11 Memorial and reflecting pools, Freedom Tower and Rescue 5 fire station. The Relay weaves through the northeast and features American landmarks such as Arlington Cemetery, Lincoln Memorial, Liberty Bell and the United States Naval Academy. The East Coast journey passes through the Carolinas, Georgia, Tennessee and Arkansas before the home stretch into Texas where it culminates at the Dallas Memorial March on Memorial Day Weekend.
