In 2024, the Marine Corps Historic Half and Marine Corps Marathon Weekends will honor and celebrate the strong and inspirational women who have chosen to serve their country and their communities as military members and first responders.

Since the first Marine Corps Marathon in 1976, women have become more prevalent in the military, taken more positions as first responders and increased their participation in endurance sports. This evolution is a testament as women have continued to break barriers throughout our country’s history.

Regardless of the challenge, risk or sacrifice, women military members and first responders face adversity and exhibit intense dedication and prowess, which we look forward to highlight as a part of our 2024 Marine Corps Historic Half and Marine Corps Marathon theme.

Register for the Marine Corps Historic Half

It’s the greatest half in history! Run through historic Fredericksburg from the retail hub of Central Park, through quaint downtown shops and restaurants, up Hospital Hill to a finish line bathed in stars and stripes.
