CourseThe Marine Corps 17.75K begins at 8:00 a.m. at the Quantico Center, located just off I-95 at exit 152B, in Prince William County, Virginia. The centerpiece of Quantico Center and location of the start line is just outside the main lobby of the MCM Event Series headquarters hotel, the Holiday Inn Dumfries-Quantico Center. Situated at the intersection of Fettler Park Drive and VA- 234, the 17.75K start will launch runners on an 11.03 mile course that first travels northwest on VA -234 away from I-95.
After three miles of paved roadway, the course veers into Prince William Forest by entering the National Park at Spriggs Lane. The course will tour the beautiful campgrounds, fragrant woods, trickling streams that have hosted generations of campers, hikers, bikers and nature lovers for nearly 80 years. Upon entering the Park, the initial mile will be on an unpaved, gravel road. Elevation will plateau from mile 4.5 - 8 before embarking on a rolling approach to the finish. The final five miles of the course are on paved roads. Participants cross the finish line in Pine Grove Camping Ground.
