The Armed Forces Half Marathon began in 2016, and recently added the new Base to Plaza 12K (coming in 2019). This event draws runners from around California and beyond to celebrate the lives of the actively serving members of the armed forces, those that have retired, and those that have fallen while in the line of duty. This event honors a branch of the service each year. In 2019, we will be honoring the United States Coast Guard.
Come and enjoy the live music and post race festival at Todos Santos Plaza, or see for yourself, the massive 5-inch commemorative finishers medal that the half marathon runners receive, or come and run and see first hand the Naval Weapons Station that once housed our nations munitions. Run through bunker city on the Half Marathon or get bussed out to the old barracks and traverse back through the base on your way back to the plaza on the 12K course.
All of this happens May 25th 2019, the weekend we memorialize our armed forces.
