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, the Huntington Beach Municipal Employees Association stepped in to sponsor the 3/1 Marines and this year the Huntington Beach Police and Community Foundation is joining us to add even more support for our Marines and their families. Year after year, with the help of our amazing runners and sponsors, our 3/1 Fun Run/Walk has been an event to remember! This event does sell out, so register early and don’t miss this amazing event!
