Memorial Day Weekend: Trot With the Troops on May 26

Our vets went the extra distance so we didn't have to.? Sign up today for Trot with the troops on May 26th! Money raised goes to charities helping Vets in need!!? We hope to see you all there!!

About the Trot - 5K

Trot w/ Troops was organized to support military personnel as they transition back into society. There will be 2 laps along Erie Street along the marina. The first lap will be a Military March followed directly into a full-blown double-time Trot. Both will be lead by U.S. Military personnel calling out cadence. LOUD & PROUD is the theme so be ready to make noise! The route is approximately 3.2 miles ? a little more than 5K. Our troops ALWAYS go the extra distance!

Prior Service / Veterans

If you're prior service, wear your military fatigues, PT uniform (or any other military uniform you wish to trot in) and join your branch at the front of the pack. Registration is not required.

March vs Trot

Choosing to March (walk) or Trot (run) is simply for staging purposes. There is no extra fee to participate in both. The first lap will be the "March" with the second lap going right into the "Trot". Marchers will line up at the back of the pack with Trotters lined up in the front. Once we break into the double-time "Trot", the Trotters will pull away from the Marchers. This is for safety and traffic purposes so that the marchers will not hold up the trotters.


We ask that all participants line up in formation with our Troops. PLEASE do not break formation or pass the person lined up in front of you. If you feel you need to rest, we ask that you step off the course and fall back in at the end of the pack. Please do not enter back into the formation until all participants pass you.


There will be Military Squad Leaders calling out cadence. As part of the experience, Marchers & Trotters are strongly encouraged to participate by repeating the cadence. LOUD and PROUD is the theme so be prepared to use those vocal chords!

FREE T-Shirts

FREE t-shirt to the first 100 PAID registrants. Additional t-shirts may be available for sale at the event while supplies last.


The route begins at the Naval Park, heads to the end of the peninsula and back.
