Event Description


The Anaheim Semper 5K & 10K is sponsored by the Anaheim 13th MEU Adoption Committee which was founded in 2007 to raise money for our military and their families. 

Hosted at spacious Riverdale Park in the heart of beautiful Anaheim Hills brings you all the features and amenities you have come to expect from a quality, family-friendly road race...and more!

We continue with our "Defending Freedom" series

Our custom finisher medal will feature another from our series.:

Our 2020 race will continue featuring a different military vehicle in which the 13th MEU utilizes. This year is dedicated to the M1 Abrams Tank. 

Great news: If you missed out on the first year (2019) you can still sign up for the 2019 Virtual Run and start your collection with the F-35 Fighter Jet II. When you collect all 5 years you will receive another special series collection medal deplicting the Iwo Jima statue.  Don't miss out - sign up while supplies last.
