Awards

Finishers will receive all three event medals, plus an exclusive challenge medal. Additionally, individuals will now have the chance to compete for category awards. This year, a runner’s aggregate finishing times from the Marine Corps 17.75K, Marine Corps Historic Half and the Marine Corps Marathon will qualify an individual for a full array of Overall and Masters awards for men and women. Who will be our 2023 Semper Fidelis Challenge Champions?

Please note that a finish in the Devil Dog Double or MCM50K no longer applies to the Semper Fidelis Challenge due to logistics with the new awards.
