With 30,000 registrants each year, the Marine Corps Marathon ranks among the largest marathons in both the U.S. and the world. Participants routinely acknowledge the event as their ‘favorite marathon.’

Boasting a course that features the well-known landmarks of the nation’s capital, the event combines the athleticism and pageantry found in a top-tier sporting event with the prestige and patriotism of the United States Marine Corps.

Through the MCM Sponsorship Program, connect to multiple communities — equal parts local and national — with affinities for the military and personal fitness. Heighten overall brand recognition and reach a well-educated, affluent community.

Sponsor integration is available through presenting sponsorships or customized packages intended to maximize return on objective. Programs include entitlements, digital advertising, on-site activation, hospitality and VIP elements, volunteering and an unprecedented opportunity to engage with a dedicated, passionate community of runners.

The Marine Corps Marathon Organization also offers unique and thrilling running experiences throughout the year aboard or near Marine Corps Base Quantico. These running challenges attract not only military participants, but also runners from around the state of Virginia (70% of participants) and across the U.S. (annually more than 35 states represented).

More than 10,000 runners will participate in events to be held throughout the year. Each event offers a different challenge and theme from the guaranteed MCM access to trail running to frozen turkey prizes. Sponsors may enjoy benefits including digital branding, logo placements, on-site activation, giveaways, signage, hospitality and much more.
