Update Coronavirus (COVID-19)
6.24.2020 The 2020 Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) Weekend is proceeding as planned for October while implementing safety measures and following the guidance of government and public health officials. In addition to the live marathon and ultra-events scheduled for Sunday, October 25 in Arlington, Virginia and the nation’s capital, the MCM and MCM50K will now be offered as virtual options as well.
The Belleau Wood 8K and Recon Ruck, events originally planned for June 20, will occur alongside the Quantico 12K on August 22 with corresponding virtual options. Run Amuck will become a do-it-yourself, virtual-only experience, while the Quantico Tri will be removed from the event schedule and be replaced by a new virtual option.
New! Accomplish the MCM Trifecta
For the first time in MCM history, ambitious runners can register for three MCM Weekend events through a combination of virtual or live MCM and MCM50K and the virtual MCM10K to complete the Trifecta.
Four Changes to MCM Weekend Schedule
In an effort to implement the many new health and safety standards required, the MCMO is adjusting operations and procedures, and extending new options to support participation.
Why 12 Minutes?
Yesterday, the Marine Corps Marathon announced a new maximum pace requirement of 12 minutes per mile, representing a reduction of two minutes per mile from what has historically been the guiding timeline. This decision was not easy but neither is the circumstance we all face with COVID 19.
