Supporting the  Sea Services

Theodore Roosevelt

We would like to thank our sponsors

The Navy League of the United States was founded in 1902 with the encouragement of President Theodore Roosevelt. We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) educational and advocacy organization that supports America’s sea services — the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and U.S.-flag Merchant Marine. 

The Navy League has provided a powerful voice for a stronger sea service to Congress and to the American people. We have grown into the foremost citizens’ organization to serve, support and stand with all the sea services – the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Coast Guard and U.S.-flag Merchant Marine.

The Oceana Running Festival is the first event to be held entirely on the runway at NAS Oceana!

The inaugural event will consist of three race distances that include the  F-18K (11.18 miles), the Hard Deck 5K (3.1 miles) and the Tomcat Challenge (consisting of the 18K plus 2.82 miles for a total of 14 miles) The Tomcat challenge honors the powerful F-14 jest which flew from NAS Oceana for many years until Tomcat sunset in 2006.
