Each and every time you put on your running shoes, the accomplishment is real whether a virtual run, training run or live event run. Stay safe, stay healthy and keep running with the Marines in 2021. Most MCMO events are scheduled as virtual runs initially. Runners must first be registered for a virtual event in order to participate in any events that are ultimately approved to host a live version.
Want to participate in MCM Weekend? Register to run "The People's Marathon" or sign up for the MCM50K or MCM10K.
Run with the Marines virtually and finish the Semper 5ive miler or the 13.1 mile Historic Half. Add up both distances and register for the 18.1 mile Devil Dog Double to earn all three fresh spinner medals. All events qualify for Distinguished Participant status. Historic Half and Devil Dog Double count toward Semper Fi Challenge.

Meet Marine Corps Historic Half Iron Miler Jeffrey Noone
When the Marine Corps Historic Half opened up in 2008, I was definitely on board. I had long been interested in running every edition of a race, and this was my opportunity. So having ran the first year, I keep driving over to Fredericksburg every year. And as in every event, my favorite part of the course is the finish line.
MCMO Volunteer Spotlight – Scott Larimer
Scott Larimer joined the Marine Corps Marathon Organization’s (MCMO) volunteer group. It’s his way of not only giving back to the community that has been a part of his family for generations but also an opportunity to practice his skills as a HAM operator. A talented videographer, Larimer also supported the 2019 Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) by filming the HAM training for all the HAM operators who were unable to attend the meeting.
