New December Running Event on Quantico Golf Course
You’ve heard of walking the greens but ‘running the greens?’ That becomes a thing this December when the Marine Corps Marathon Organization, in partnership with Marine Corps Community Services, hosts a limited field 8K on the Medal of Honor Golf Course on December 8. Registration is now open and costs $30. All participants will receive a special Medal of Honor 8K fleece hat.
The 8K begins at 9:30 a.m.
Originally called "The Officers' Club Golf Course," the Medal of Honor Golf Course began in 1930 as a six-hole layout. The course grew to nine holes in 1934 and expanded to 18-holes in the mid-1940s, when it was renamed the "Quantico Golf Course." One more name change would occur in 1930, when it took its current title of "Medal of Honor Golf Course." The course is open year round to Active Duty and Retired Military, DoD civilian employees, family members, FBI Academy, National Guard and Reserve personnel and the general public.
