Running for a cause? Running to remember? Running to see the sites? Running for the shirt? Countless motivations bring 30,000 runners together to participate in the Marine Corps Marathon. Along with the arrival of spring, this week brings the long-circled date on the calendar for the opening of MCM Lottery registration. Runners can begin signing up for the MCM Lottery beginning on Thursday, March 24 at noon Eastern.
MCM's messiest and muddiest event, Run Amuck, has expanded its color palette for the corresponding participant waves to facilitate a smooth start on June 4. With four and two mile versions of its course, Run Amuck will send runners into the hills of Quantico to encounter more than 20 obstacles and mud challenges.
April showers bring May flowers. June, though, brings mud. Lots and lots of mud. Go hard chargin' into the summer months by meeting the challenge of Run Amuck aboard Marine Corps Base Quantico on June 4. It's a chance to soar, climb, float, crawl, thrive, survive, endure, achieve and, just be, awesome.
Runners were glued to their laptops for a long awaited appointment with the new MCM website to sign up for the in-demand, run-to-register event known as the Marine Corps 17.75K. Unofficially, runners from more than 30 states captured all entries to the Marine Corps 17.75K in less than eight minutes.
During registration, runners can purchase the limited-edition heather gray technical training shirt with red accents featuring the motivating phrase “Can Do.”
