USNA Marathon Team Competes in Navy-Air Force 5 Miler and Half Marathon

The USNA Marathon Team traveled to Washington, D.C., Sept. 14 to compete in the 2014 Navy-Air Force 5 Miler and Half Marathon. The Navy Marathon Team placed first for the Navy 5 Miler and Half Marathon Military Challenge.  


The half marathon race started and finished in the shadow of the Washington Monument. During the half marathon, runners passed many historical sites, some of which were D.C. memorials and the scenic Rock Creek Parkway and East and West Potomac Parks. The 5 miler also started and finished in the shadow of the Washington Monument, taking runners from South to East Potomac Parks.

After the team successfully finished both races, they were honored to have the opportunity to meet Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. James A. Winnefeld Jr.


Winnefield gave each midshipmen a Challenger’s Coin and spoke to them about leadership and the importance of holding one’s sailors and marines to the highest standards while taking care of them to the best of one’s ability. The midshipmen on the Marathon Team and Admiral Winnefield shared more than one thing in common:  a love of running, country, and service.
