Packet Pick-up for the Marine Corps 17.75K will be at the National Museum of the Marine Corps on the following dates and times:
Runners are highly encouraged to pick up their own materials and verify personal information.
For runners unable to attend Packet Pick-up, proxy pick-up is an available option. Runners may designate an individual to obtain their bib and event materials. The individual picking up the bib for a registered runner must present a hard copy of the completed e-Card with a copy of the runner’s photo ID, as well as a copy of his/her ID. Please be sure to obtain the runner’s preferred shirt size. e-Cards are emailed to the registered runner before the event. Parents may sign waiver and retrieve packets for their children under 18 years of age.
Race day pick up should be an absolute last resort. If you must pick up on that day, please plan accordingly and allow ample time to park, ride the shuttle, pick up your packet and get ready for the start of the Marine Corps 17.75K at 7 a.m. The Information Tent will be open as early as 5:00 a.m. on event morning. Please note that there is no proxy pick up on event morning.
Friends and family members are welcome and encouraged to cheer their runner. The best location to do this is from the 17.75K start and finish locations adjacent to the Montclair Tabernacle Church. Those who want to view their runner from inside Prince William Forest Park can walk into the park from the Pleasant Road entrance, where runners initially enter the park.
Opportunities to work alongside U.S. Marines range from assembling runner packets and shirts to supporting a water point, food station, medical aid station, runner’s hospitality or the start and finish areas on event day.
All volunteers take pride in supporting thousands of individuals striving to achieve a running goal.
Volunteers receive a commemorative shirt and a certificate for each event supported. Individuals and groups are encouraged to volunteer throughout the year. Support opportunities are announced at a minimum of six weeks prior to each event.
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.
