9:00 a.m. start
“We loved the race. We have a group of 12 that comes down from Sacramento every year (we’re on year 3). The best volunteers in the world. See you next year.”
“Very impressed with the organization, energy demonstrated by the military and the race itself. My father was stationed at Pendleton, Vietnam vet, and passed away 3 years ago this past memorial day and it was an honor to run a race in his name. Thank you for such a great experience. Will be back next year.”
This annual charity fundraiser raises money that benefits all programs and services offered to Camp Pendleton military personnel and their families at low or no cost, by the Armed Services YMCA. THANK YOU FOR HELPING THOSE WHO SERVE AMERICA!
