Registration is now open for the 2015 City of Laguna Hills Half Marathon. This marks the 17th year for this event which honors the US Marine Corps Dark Horse Battalion. In addition to the Half Marathon there are a 10K, 5K, and Kids Run so the whole family can start this important holiday off together.

Corporal Marcus Chischilly, a USMC infantry veteran with 8 years of service, four combat tours, and multiple medals including a Purple Heart, has accepted Team Darkhorse’s invitation to serve as Grand Marshal of the annual Memorial Day Race and Expo.

This year’s medal will commemorate the US Navy. In addition to finisher medals for all Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K participants, the top three male and female finishers in each age division will receive a commemorative award. If you participated last year, you will have earned the finisher medal for the US Marines. Those who participate every year through 2018 will collect finisher medals for each of the 5 divisions of the US military and receive a special Joint Chiefs of Staff Medal for their accomplishment. Make sure you check out their official website for complete information about the event HERE. You can also REGISTER HERE and use code OCMOM – good for 10% off for OC Mom Blog followers!

I had the opportunity to run in the 2014 Laguna Hills Half Marathon and earn my US Marines finisher medal. I’m looking forward to earning my US Navy medal this year. You can read about my experience running the 2014 race HERE on the OC Mom Blog. I hope to see many of our readers at this year’s event!
