LITTLE ROCK, AR - This weekend a special long-distance run is taking place to honor America's brave called The Arkansas Run For the Fallen.

This is video of last year's closing ceremony of the run.

This year planners will run 140 miles from Ozark to remember each person killed in operation Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom.

"I fought in operation Iraqi Freedom and I went there with my best friend and he was killed in action in Afghanistan and it's very important to me," says Tyler Banks.

The event starts tomorrow (Friday) and ends Sunday.
