Famous Finishers

Ask any MCM runner to name a famous MCM finisher, and the first person that most will name is talk show host Oprah Winfrey for her 1994 participation. Many runners can even rattle off her finish time (4:29:15). What runners may not know is that the MCM has welcomed many famous faces to the start line in its 37-year history.   

Do you know a celebrity who wants to run the MCM? Contact Marc Goldman, MCM Sponsorship and Marketing Manager at
