The MARSOC Foundation was established to provide benevolent support to active duty and medically retired MARSOC personnel and their families as well as to the families of Marines and Sailors who have lost their lives in service to our Nation. Our local community in particular has seen the great support provided by the MARSOC Foundation. All monetary donations from our sponsors and profits from registration are sent directly to the MARSOC Foundation. Find out more at MARSOCFoundation.org
The 5k is a TIMED EVENT on mostly paved, neighborhood roads. The course is subject to change if road construction is not completed in time. By popular demand we have staggered our walkers from our runners. 5k Walkers (35-60min 5k) will start at 8:30am, followed by 1/2 mile Fun Runners at 8:45am and 5k Runners (less than 35min 5k) at 9:00am. If your training leaves you either faster or not quite at goal pace come race week, let us know so we can adjust your category. There will be no 1st place prizes for walkers, this isn’t the Olympics and we don’t have judges to ensure you are keeping one foot in contact with the ground at all times.
Registered 5k participants will receive a race shirt. Additional shirts may be purchased during registration for 1/2 mile Fun Runners or anybody else. Availability of shirts is not guaranteed for registrations after 1Nov.
We are already seeing some great prizes donated for our raffle. Raffle tickets will be distributed to registered racers. One raffle ticket per registration plus a raffle ticket for each additional dollar donated online. Raffle tickets will also be available for purchase (cash or check) during packet pickup.
New this year is the incentive to refer your family, friends and coworkers to this race. After successful registration you will receive a referral code. For every new registrant who applies your referral code you will receive $2 credit toward your registration fee and will receive up to a full refund following the race. Get out there and invite everyone you know!
