General Information
  • We are no longer sponsoring patrons without DOD ID cards.
  • Runners without DOD ID cards will not be sponsored by MWR to access the installation. If you do not have an ID to access the installation the only way you can participate is through a family member or friend that can register you for the run under them and drive you on the installation. You may be a guest of an authorized runner but it is the responsibility of the authorized runner to get you on the installation.
  • Running groups are invited for each run. At least one person must be an authorized ID card holder that has access to the installation and can register the running group and get all runners onto the installation. MWR will not assist with access to the installation.
