Our mission is to improve the quality of life of our Marines, Sailors and their families. In order to execute this mission, the Hard Corps Race Series is refocusing the 2019 race schedule. All races with the exception of the Marine Corps Mud Run and the Tun Tavern Virtual Run will only be open to Active Duty, their families, retirees and DoD employees.  We will continue to offer The Marine Corps Mud Run and the Tun Tavern Virtual Run to all civilians as an opportunity to race and support our Marines. Please consider continuing to participate in the Hard Corps Races with one of these opportunities.

Authorized Base Patrons please check www.HardCorpsRaceSeries.com in the new year for our updated schedule.

Thank you for your commitment and understanding as we make these changes to better support our Marines and their families.

Help us support quality of life programs for our Marines, Sailors & their families

Come Get Some!!!

We would like to invite you and other multisport enthusiasts to join us for our Semper Triathlon, Devil Dog Duathlon & 7K No Beach Out of Reach Run! During this event you’ll get to come aboard our beloved Marine Corps Base, Camp Pendleton and participate where America’s finest fighting force hails. There will be much to see as you participate in the home of our Navy’s LCAC (hovercraft) and take that bike ride into the heart of our artillery regiment, home of the 11th Marines! If you haven’t done this event yet it’s a MUST on the bucket list! If you have done this event then you already know and we will see you at the start line!

Triathlon Course
500 meter swim off of ACU-5 Camp Pendleton with an average water temperature of 68 degrees. The out and back 30K bike ride leaves ACU-5, follows Stuart Mesa Road North, and continues east to a turnaround point on Las Pulgas Road-moderate hills throughout. THE BIKE PORTION IS A CLOSED COURSE. The 5K run is a loop course through ACU-5. This run is flat and fast with a few easy inclines. Aid Stations will be located at the transition area, at the bike turnaround and every mile on the run course.

7K No Beach Out of Reach Run Course (non-competitive)
The 7K No Beach Out of Reach Run begins with a 2K out and back beach run then continues with the same 5K run as the Triathlon and Duathlon which is a loop course through ACU-5. This run is flat and fast on the flight deck of ACU-5. Aid Stations will be located at the end of the beach run, and every mile on the 5K run course. This is a non-competitive/non-award race. Just for FUN!
