Quantico 100

During May 1917, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, then the Assistant Secretary of the Navy, joined Major General Commandant George Barnett to cut the first tree symbolizing the official acquisition of the Marine Reservation Quantico, Virginia. On April 29, the MCM marks the 100-year anniversary of Marine Corps Base Quantico with the Quantico 100, a 100-minute challenge run.

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 in proximity to the nation’s capital. Assistant Commandant Brig. Gen. John A. Lejeune 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. One hundred years later, as part of a Centennial Celebration, on April 29, 2017 at 5:30 p.m., Marines, friends of the Corps and MCM-running enthusiasts mark a century of the Crossroads by participating in the Quantico 100, a 100-minute running challenge to accumulate as much mileage as possible. The event includes a 2.62 mile Mini version of the challenge and a free, post-event concert.
