In 2005, the City of Huntington Beach adopted the 3rd Battalion/1st Marines out of Camp Pendleton, CA. The Huntington Beach 3/1 Marines Foundation was formed in 2006 to oversee all projects, programs and activities in support of the Marines, Sailors and Families of the "Thundering Third." In 2012, Huntington Beach Municipal Employees Association stepped in to sponsor the 3/1 Marines. Since this undertaking -- and with the help of our amazing runners and sponsors -- our 3/1 Fun Run/Walk has been a sell-out nearly every year! Register early and don’t miss this amazing event!
