Naval Station Mayport and the Community

For over 75 years, NS Mayport has served as a vital part of the local Jacksonville and Beaches community. We pride ourselves on bringing local businesses and organizations in as part of our base events and festivals. The Saratoga Classic Half Marathon not only serves as an inaugural event of its kind here at NS Mayport, but also as a chance to introduce the local civilian communities to the the base and the Navy’s presence here. Your partnership with the Saratoga Classic will have you connecting directly with military, DoD, and civilian participants, all while building goodwill and increasing brand recognition across the Jacksonville area and surrounding counties.

About USS Saratoga (CV-60)

USS Saratoga was the first aircraft carrier homeported at Naval Station Mayport, spending her entire career (1956-1994) at Mayport.

She operated through the Vietnam War, Operation Desert Storm and many other conflicts.

In honor of USS Saratoga’s fighting spirit, we are pleased to name this half marathon and 5K in her honor.
