January 14, 2013

The Marine Beach Challenge includes live entertainment, giveaways, and endurance activities.

Newport Dunes is proud to host the Third Annual 1st Battalion, 1st Marines Foundation Beach Challenge on Saturday, January 19 at 8 am. The 1st Battalion, 1st Marines is one of the most decorated and distinguished units in the Marine Corps. Participants of all ages are invited to test their physical skills in endurance activities used by real Marines to prepare for combat!

Form a team with your friends and family to compete in activities while being cheered on by the Marines. Participate in the low crawl wearing real combat gear, dummy drag, sand bag carry, cone zigzag, grenade toss, tire flip, and a beach run or walk. The event will feature live entertainment, fantastic prizes, and giveaways. All participants will receive complimentary medals (dog tags), as well as a commemorative T-shirt. All fitness levels are welcome; teams must register by January 17 in order to participate. Marines train and fight for our freedom no matter what the weather is, so the Beach Challenge is on rain or shine! Proceeds from this event will benefit the Newport Beach 1st Battalion, 1st Marines Foundation. Register online at or call 949-385-1110 for more information.
