Until Event Day April 29th
The Base Race Quantico 100
At the dawn of the 20th century, to support an increase of Marines, new training grounds and barracks were needed, as was a field training site in proximity to the nation’s capital. A surveying party was led by Assistant Commandant Brig. Gen. John A. Lejeune, who made arrangements for a temporary training ground on the Potomac at Quantico. The Marine Corps leased 5,300 acres around the Town of Quantico. On May 14, 1917, the Base opened. In 2017, Marines, friends of the Corps and MCM running enthusiasts can celebrate a century of the Crossroads by participating in the Quantico 100.
