"The NC Minuteman Muster is a large scale community outreach initiative, for citizens of Wake and surrounding counties, designed to demonstrate the collaborative, multi-agency domestic response mission of the NC National Guard and its many Emergency Response partner agencies," Bushwhack Adventure Racing explains.

There will be three races -- including an 8k run, Duathlon and an Adventure Race -- that begin at 8 a.m. at the National Guard headquarters in Raleigh.

Participants must pre-register, and registration is open through the Bushwhack Adventure Racing website.

Armed Forces Day, which will be celebrated this year on May 18, honors Americans serving in the military.
