The Air & Space Challenge

After much thought and consideration, the Air Force Services Center has done a complete overhaul of the Air & Space Challenge. Beginning in 2023, this challenge will be a competition amongst teams of Air Force and Space Force service members. Each half marathon and marathon team will be compromised of 5 members (mixed male/female) evenly built according to information provided on individual applications. Only 50 service members will be selected to attend.

Individuals selected may attend in a permissive TDY status as authorized by AFI 36-3003, Military Leave Program. Each team member will receive uniforms and portions of travel, registration, and lodging reimbursed through Air Force Services Center.
