Thank you for choosing to volunteer on the wear blue at the Marine Corps Historic Half, Double Dog, and Semper5 this Sunday, May 19, 2019. Our community supports military and their families, veterans, Gold Star families, and civilians through active remembrance and meaningful relationships. We motivate and empower individuals to healthier, more inspired living. As a reminder, you will be volunteering to hold a flag bearing the name of a specific fallen service member who has paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.

The wear blue Mile is located just past mile 1 of the Double Dog and Semper5 and Mile 9 on the Historic Half course.


Several parking options are available:
