Looking for a family-friendly, in-person race this spring?

Head to Marine Base Quantico for this 5-miler! After a year of cancellations and virtual races, the Semper 5ive is a great way to get back out there. The deadline for enrollment is April 14, so act fast if you want to secure a spot.

Registration is just $45 per person, and it includes official timing results, a commemorative medal, and a technical race shirt. The course will weave all through the base, with a portion of it along the Potomac River.

Click here to reserve a spot online, and don't forget to check-in on base before race day to get your pass at the Visitor Control Center. Packet pick-up will be on May 1.

  • The course is 5 miles, with one water station at mile 2.6.
