Challenge yourself and support your local military members. Proceeds go to the Army ROTC Islander Battalion at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.

This event is open to the public and coincides with Homecoming Week - we extend a special welcome to alumni as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of ROTC and the 10th anniversary of the Islander Battalion.

Join us for...

A 5K:

  • USATF certified course, primarily on the scenic hike-and-bike trail at the university's island campus. The course is entirely on paved surfaces.
  • Army-themed dog tag finisher medals.
  • Awards for top age group and overall winners.
  • T-shirts guaranteed to those who register by January 20.
  • ROTC birthday cake.

A Push-up Challenge:

After the 5K, take on an extra challenge in a push-up challenge graded by Army drill sergeants!

  • Complete as many military-style push-ups as you can within 2 minutes.
  • Awards to male and female with the most push ups.
