Come and join the Southern California Explosive Ordnance Disposal community on Memorial Day as we run this scenic waterfront course in historic NTC Park. 100% of the proceeds from this fundraiser will go to the EOD Warrior Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping EOD technicians and their families overcome the challenges they face after an injury or loss.
This years event will feature: a 5k run/walk, a Junior EOD Warrior 1k, chip timing, a stroller division, t-shirts for 5k participants, overall and age group awards, a beer garden, food trucks, a silent auction and more.
Watch EOD Warriors run in the EOD bomb suit, a 75 lb modern day suit of armor designed to protect EOD Technicians from explosions, and compete in a relay race like no other! Cheer them on as they fight for bragging rights!
