Start planning for your success in October and use the 5 T's to guide you through training and MCM day..
Choose an organization that resonates with you and click the links to connect directly with the organization and their representatives to find out how you can add purpose to your miles. Charities may have entries to the MCM, MCM10K and even the MCM50K.
Running 26.2 miles is an incredible feat, but for those participating in honor of a family member who served or is serving, the accomplishment serves a bigger purpose. As we remember those that have fought and sacrificed for their country, we recognize the family members who share their stories.
Even in most places where we are required to shelter in place, going outside for periods of time to run, hike or just to take a walk with people from your household and/or dog is safe – and good.
So, you’re thinking of running your first marathon? Great! There’s no better place for your debut than the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM). The MCM, also known as “The People’s Marathon,” is the best event for first-time marathoners. While the course is nothing short of spectacular and crossing the finish line is exhilarating, the road to completion is not easy.
The Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) hosts runners from all 50 states and dozens of countries every October in Arlington, VA and the nation’s capital. The lottery process for registration can be…intense to say the least. Runners have a two-week window during March 18-31 to declare their intent to run the MCM by signing up for the MCM Lottery.
