RAWLINS, Wyo. — A Marine is running 161 miles (259 kilometers) across Wyoming to honor the 161 U.S. military women killed in the line of duty since 9/11.

The Rawlins Times reports Marine Pamela Torres is expected to end the run in Rawlins on Tuesday — a week after beginning the journey in Cheyenne.

Torres trained for a year before starting the Valor Run.

She says the elevation and weather have been challenging but running through the wide-open landscape has been enjoyable.

Sinclair and Rawlins are planning celebrations as Torres reaches the towns Tuesday.
