"Move for the memorial!"
Come join us in support of building the Coast Guard Enlisted Memorial. All registration fees will be going straight to the Coast Guard Enlisted Memorial Foundation (CGEMF). Their ultimate goal? To build a memorial for more than 1500 enlisted Coast Guard servicemembers who have given their lives in the line of duty.

Race day will consist of a 10K run and a 5K. Both courses are flat and fast. The weather in Cape May is usually exceptional in early October. There are plenty of historic hotels and B&Bs in the vicinity of the event as well.
Both races will start and finish at the historic U. S. Coast Guard Training Center Cape May - home of the only Coast Guard "Boot Camp." Guests will be able to speak with the Recruit Company Commanders (Drill Instructors) and recruits.
The 10K route will travel along the Pittsburgh Avenue and loop around at poverty beach.
