SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. – (October 3, 2017) – The inaugural California Warrior Experience, slated for Friday & Saturday, March 23-24, 2018 at Camp San Luis Obispo military base, has announced the #CaliforniaWarrior campaign and its October “Are You a California Warrior?” contest for a chance to be featured as a California Warrior and to win free entries. This unique event, produced in partnership by Race SLO and The California Military Department, invites people to share their personal California stories of triumph, overcoming obstacles, selfless service or reaching health & fitness goals.
“What is a #CaliforniaWarrior? As a campaign, #CaliforniaWarrior celebrates all who champion California values. There are people from all walks of life doing incredible things for our state everyday. It's your California Military Department flipping the script and thanking the rest of California for their service. #CaliforniaWarrior showcases what’s possible when others, who are passionate about service & community, team up with a fresh, inspired military,” said Carl Trujillo, Acting Director, California Military Department Foundation.
People can share their #CaliforniaWarrior stories three ways on www.warriortrailrun.org:
Individual Website Form: Share story on website to win one of 12 entries and be featured; DEADLINE = October 31, 2017

“We look forward to reading and sharing these inspirational stories of how people found and developed their inner California Warrior by accomplishing or overcoming something they once thought impossible. These rich human experiences are one of the pillars that both Race SLO and The California Military Department pride themselves on,” said Samantha Pruitt, Race SLO Founder & CEO.
