Dedicated Miles

Grindstone is actually 101.85 in length. You can dedicate a mile to any person, unit or organization with a $ 100.00 donation. It makes a great gift, or a great way to remember a fallen or wounded Brother, or honor someone who deserves it.  **All miles have now been dedicated** Each fallen MARSOC Operator will have 4 miles run in his honor.

Mile

101.85 Col Robert J. Coates ( Still very much alive) I am dedicating the last .85 miles of Grindstone to the C.O. of U.S. Marine Corps Special Operations Command Detachment 1, and the Godfather of MARSOC  He is the man who ensured that we always went the extra mile, and remained “Tough, Rugged Bastards”
