Come join us for the US Marine Corps Memorial 5K/10K at Memorial Park in Arvada on September 19th. This event helps to fund the Marine Corps Memorial located at Colfax and 6th Avenue in Golden, Colorado. The Women Marines Association founded the US Marine Corps Memorial 5K in 2006 to help fund their 501 (c)3 purposes and to help with the expenses at the Memorial itself. Founded in 1977 on 6th Ave and Colfax in Golden - the Memorial serves as a place to mourn, reflect, honor and rest for those in any service, but especially for Marines. Many organizations use the Memorial for promotions and other ceremonies as well as weddings. It is also used to teach young people about service to the community and country and the importance of remembering those who served.
This year we added boulders to the “Circle of Honor” for War Dogs and Chaplains and there are many more improvements to the grounds that are being planned. In order to keep a flag flying in acceptable condition at the Memorial it cost over $2K a year, maintenance and improvements are a great deal more. Funding provided through your donations and your participation in the run will help to make those changes possible.
There are savings registration categories for 5K and 10K for families/teams up to 4. You can, however, be a part of a team by selecting the Team dropdown box during registration and selecting the team you are joining.
