On May 20, 2017 at Riverdale Park in Anaheim, CA hundreds of enthusiastic runners and walkers will come together in an effort to raise funds in support of and to show their gratitude for the Marines and Sailors of the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) stationed at Camp Pendleton. This spectacular 5K&10K is the fourth run hosted the the Anaheim 13th MEU Adoption Committee and the second featuring a Virtual Run
We realize that many of our dear friends, family and supporters may not able to join us that morning due to other commitments and obligations. Because we want everyone to have the opportunity to participate, we've added a virtual option!
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL 5K&10K ??
A virtual 5K&10K means that you choose to do your 5K or 10K by your rules. You can run, walk, hike, crawl, dance, stroll or any combination thereof; whatever it takes to cover a distance of either 3.1 (5K) or 6.2 (10K) miles. You can choose your day, your time, your venue - you can choose to participate outdoors or even indoors on your treadmill. You are your own boss for the day!
For the $20 entry fee, all participants will receive a bib, t-shirt and finishers medal.
The only requirement is that you complete your miles byDecember 31, 2017.
