Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS) programs are ‘vital to mission accomplishment and form an integral part of the non-pay compensation system.’ These programs encourage positive individual values, personal development, and aid in recruitment and retention of personnel.
The MCCS programs provide for the physical, cultural, service and social needs of Marines and other members of the Marine Corps family. They also provide community support systems that make Marine Corps bases/stations temporary hometowns for this mobile population.
Camp Pendleton Hard Corps Race Series, home of the ‘World Famous Mud Run’, offers a variety of other events to include the Hellfire Fat Tire Mountain Bike Race, Heartbreak Ridge Run, the Semper Tri, Devil Dog Duathlon, and No Beach out of Reach Races, Water Warrior Amphibious Assault, and the Tour de Camp Pendleton.
