The 24HR Challenge is the TACP Association’s largest and most important annual fundraising event. Founded by CMSgt Eric Rankin, this event unites the TACP Community through camaraderie and competition.

The event honors our fallen TACP brothers and unites the TACP community.

The goal of the event is to complete as many miles as possible in the 24 hour period and raise as much money as possible for the TACP Association.

Monies raised through the TACP 24HR Challenge directly benefit the TACP community, through the programs and services offered by the TACP Association.

The TACP Association (TACP-A) is a 501c(19) non-profit organization (Tax ID: 31-1808936) that serves as a support structure for the Tactical Air Control Party (TACP) Community. TACP is a career field in the Air Force that provides close air support to other military branches overseas.

Our Mission


The entry fee for this race will be used as a donation to the TACP Association. TACPA is a remarkable network of past and present members of the Air Force community dedicated to providing support for Tactical Air Control Party (TACP) service members and their families. We promote a warrior spirit among the TACP community by sponsoring and coordinating events in which TACPA members celebrate our career field. Together as a community, we remember the Fallen, honor the living and support TACP families.

The Mission of the TACP Association is to, “Remember. Honor. Support.”. This means we Remember our fallen, Honor our living, and Support those in need.
