Out of an abundance of caution for public safety, precautionary measures are being taken to ensure the health and well-being of all Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego (MCRDSD) personnel, recruit population, families and our communities. As a result, MCRDSD will be cancelling the 2020 Boot Camp Challenge.
There are no known cases of COVID-19 here at MCRD San Diego, and we must remain cautious and focused on the public’s safety while continuing to make Marines. We apologize for any inconvenience, but these measures have been put in place with everyone’s best interests in mind. Thank you for your understanding.
Refunds will be issued in the upcoming weeks to all Challengers who have already registered.
