Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Coalition partners deployed to Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar completed the 2015 Air Force Marathon Forward September 13, 2015. This marked seven years that the race has taken place at seven operating bases in theater. The first Air Force Marathon was held in 1997 at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. Since then, each marathon has been held the third Saturday of September, with an aircraft chosen each year to represent Air Force history in flight.
