Volunteer

MCM Volunteer

The MCM strives to promote physical fitness, generate community goodwill, and showcase the organizational skills of the United States Marine Corps. That is not possible without the help of more than 1,800 volunteers required during MCM Weekend. Additional support also is necessary during Marine Corps Historic Half Weekend in May, and for each of the MCM Event Series, hosted annually from March through November. A wide variety of volunteer openings are available for individuals and groups.

Opportunities to work alongside U.S. Marines range from distributing runner packets and shirts before the event to supporting a water point, food station, medical aid station, runner's hospitality or the start and finish areas on event day.

All volunteers can pride themselves for supporting thousands of individuals striving to achieve their running goals. Additionally, volunteers receive a commemorative shirt and certificate for each event supported.

Individuals and groups are encouraged to volunteer throughout the year. Support opportunities are announced at a minimum of six weeks prior to each event. Below is a list of active volunteer opportunities.

A special thank you to the many individuals and groups who supported the Marine Corps Historic Half during May 2015.

For additional information or inquiries, please contact the MCM Volunteer Coordinator for individual and group volunteer information.

Recruiting Groups to Adopt-a-Mile at the 40th Marine Corps Marathon

 

The Marine Corps Marathon is recruiting volunteer groups to "Adopt-A-Mile" along the MCM course. These groups of at least 18 members (one adult per five youth members) will pick-up trash and recyclables in an effort to be good stewards of the National Parks, the nation's capital and the Arlington, Community.  Apply for consideration.  Selected groups will be joined by two US Marines along a specifically designated mile of the course and receive a stipend of $450.00.  Initial deadline to register is August 15.  If you miss the deadline or if your group is not selected as part of the Adopt-A-Mile program, please consider  volunteering for the Marine Corps Marathon.   For additional information, please contact Charlie Harr, Marine Corps Marathon Operations Coordinator, at Charles.W.Harr@usmc.mil.
