What is the Levy Challenge?

Levy Challenge is a 10k endurance race that will challenge you mentally and physically. The event includes obstacles such as: The Marine Corps obstacle course, steep grade of Hill 488, Quang Nam mud crawl, Rock Pile ammo resupply mission, pull-up challenge, Hue City ruck run, and the Da Nang serpentine. You can run this race individually or as a 4-person team. Come challenge yourself at the oldest private military college in the United States and see if you have what it takes to conquer the Levy challenge.

Where do the proceeds go?

The proceeds go to the Semper Fi Fund. The Semper Fi Fund is a charity that supports military members and their families from all branches who have been injured or have a life-threatening illness from post 9/11 combat. The sacrifice the men and women of our armed forces have made have inspired us to give back as much as possible. Learn more at
