This race is dedicated to Major Megan McClung (April 14, 1972–December 6, 2006) who was the first female USMC officer killed in combat during the Iraq War. Major McClung was serving as a public affairs officer in Al Anbar Province, Iraq when she was killed.
The city of Oak Harbor, WA and Megan’s mom and brother are hosting this 8th annual run to remember this fallen hero and to raise funds for her fellow Marines and sailors who have been wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. Please join us September 9, 2017 in beautiful Oak Harbor on Whidbey Island.
