Marine 5K Run

USATF Certified CourseTHE COURSE TOO TOUGH TO TAME!

The USATF certified 5K course [NC13075DF] has you running up and down hills, around Sugar Mountain, and crossing a bridge over Purple Heart Creek. This is a Marine Run, it will be CHALLENGING, but being Challenging is what you would expect from a Marine Run. 

Not a runner? Join us for the untimed Pollywog 5K for Kids and Adults – walk at your own pace.

Some are asking ‘How tough is the course?’, It’s a Challenging course. Last years runners stated that this race was the best race they had run all year, Other’s said it was a great course,  but it is not a P.R. course, that’s why the nickname; THE COURSE TOO TOUGH TO TAME.  Part of the Marine Corps Creed is to ‘Never leave anyone Behind’.  Same goes for this event; ‘No Runner Will be Left Behind’.  We’ll be there to make sure everyone finishes.

New this year… the Top Overall Male & Female 5K winner will receive the coveted Bronze Marine Boot award
