Mulberry Island Half Marathon and 5K
This is the 41st Annual Mulberry Island Half Marathon and 5K hosted here at Fort Eustis. We are excited for this year’s event!
This half marathon and 5K route runs along various scenic roads on Fort Eustis, including Mulberry Island Road.
“On the north shore of the James River, 20 miles west of the Chesapeake Bay, the marshy plains of Mulberry Island can bee seen. Mulberry Island is a picturesque fixture of Virginia’s Tidewater region whose natural beauty is enriched by thousands of years of human history. With 10,000 years of human history, over 230 recorded archaeological sites, two museums, and what may be the oldest building under the Department of Defense’s care, Mulberry Island is a showpiece of Chesapeake heritage and military stewardship. Today, as part of Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Fort Eustis continues to celebrate Mulberry Island’s long and rich history, spanning the millennia from its earliest prehistoric occupants to the arrival of the modern military. “
