The 3rd Annual Marines Helping Heroes 5k Challenge - presented by Live! Casino-Hotel - is a fundraising event hosted by Arundel Mills Mall. The event was created by the Anne Arundel County Detachment of the MARINE CORPS LEAGUE to support our local military and veterans. All funds raised will benefit our local military and the Semper Fi Fund.
This flat course at Arundel Mills Mall is suitable for runners at any level. Who knows? A personal best may be in the making.
The unique Challenge portion of this event is entirely optional. Participants may sign up (at no additional charge) to compete in a sit-up and push-up contest. Those scores, plus your run time will be combined to give a Physical Fitness Test score with prizes awarded accordingly.
Complimentary refreshments at the finish line. Be sure to browse the vendor area located nearby.
The race is rapidly filling up and T-shirts have already been ordered. Sizes are limited. Only the first 175 registered runners are guaranteed a T-shirt.
The Marine Corps League is a not-for-profit 501(c)4 veterans organization. Your contributions may be tax deductible. Please consult your tax professional
