A public monument to honor Navy SEALs is long overdue. Virginia Beach, where the earliest SEAL forerunners came together 75 years ago, will be home to a monument honoring these extraordinary warriors. The monument will provide a striking tribute to SEALs and their antecedents and the City of Virginia Beach’s important part in their remarkable history. Navy SEAL history began in 1942 when volunteers for special missions came together and trained in Virginia Beach. These earliest SEAL predecessors distinguished themselves in combat later that year during Operation TORCH in North Africa. Spartyka Race Team is proud to host the Virtual SEAL Monument 5k.
Online Registration starts at $25 per individual runner/walker for early registration until 05 May then it moves to $30 until 05 June and late registration is from 05 June until online registration closes and will cost $35 per individual runner/walker so register early.
This event welcomes runners and walkers (competitive and leisure) of all ages and anyone with a patriotic spirit who wants to show support for the Navy Seal Monument. Registration includes Event T-shirt, Race Bib, Race Bag and Finishers Medal!
We hope you’ll join us in making the SEAL Monument 5K a huge success!
