Legendary Bellleau Wood 8K

  • Presented By: Marine Corps Base Quantico
  • Dates: June 20, 2020
  • Address: 3399 Russell Road, Quantico, VA 22134
  • Time: 6:20 AM

On Saturday, June 20 aboard Marine Corps Base Quantico, run 4.97 miles in the spirit of the Marines who earned the nickname "Devil Dogs."

 

In a wooded area outside Paris known as Belleau Wood, a three-week battle with the Germans in June 1918 would prove to be a defining moment for the U.S. Marine Corps. It was here during WWI that the Marines earned the nickname "Teufel Hunden" or "Devil Dogs.” In a test of individual tenacity, the Belleau Wood 8K will send runners to the woods and onto the trails of Quantico.
