The annual Run for the Wall event is this weekend in Junction City. This is year 34 of official rides for Run for the Wall, and they have made an annual stop in Junction City for over 20 years. 

Bonnie Templeton, Assistant Director of the Junction City Committee for Run for the Wall, said more than 300 riders are expected on Sunday evening and that over 300 flags will be handed out. "We anticipate the riders to arrive between 5:30 and 5:45 on Sunday afternoon," Templeton said. "We would like everyone to be in Heritage Park no later than 5:00 p.m. to pick up flags." 

The riders will come off I-70 and make their way down Washington, where there will then be a ceremony in Heritage Park. 68th District House of Representative Nate Butler will be the keynote speaker at the ceremony. 

Following the ceremony and event, the riders will be provided with dinner at the Eagles, and on Monday morning, before departure, the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association will provide a breakfast.
