Son of a Beach 5K Run/Walk

A tradition started in 2013 will continue to honor those who have given everything for our nation.  Instead of the race being 3.1 miles (5K), it will be 3.3 miles.  This distance is in memory of the crew of RATCHET 33 who lost their lives on a combat mission as this race was being run in 2012 (Sat, 18 Feb 2012). During those last .2 miles we ask that all runners remember those who have given their lives in the defense of our nation, especially the four heroes that died on this day in 2012.
