Victory in Arrival

A triumphant moment when participants reach the Historic Half finish line. Runners are motivated by the cheering masses lining the street on the final approach. Runners reach the massive stars and stripes archway signaling mission complete. Standing just inside the finish area, awaiting Marines present the symbol of accomplishment-a finisher medal. Runners enjoy this moment of mutual respect as the Marines extend congratulations to the runners and the runners expresses gratitude for the Marines service to our country. Runners proceed to the new Finish Festival location inside FredNats Ballpark featuring sponsor booths, activities and post-event celebrations!

Finish Festival

After crossing the Historic Half, Semper 5ive and Devil Dog Double finish lines, runners can reunite with their supporters and enjoy the activities and energy of the Finish Festival. New for 2022: the Finish Festival takes place inside FredNats Ballpark!

Finisher Medals

Runners are mission focused when it comes to participating in the Marine Corps Historic Half. The collective goal is to conquer Hospital Hill. All runners complete the journey under the finish line archway adorned in stars and stripes, where an awaiting Marine Corps lieutenant presents each finisher with a unique medal reflecting the history of the host community of Fredericksburg. The presentation of the medal is regarded by participants at all MCM events as the highlight the event experience.


Post-event hospitality will be located near the Fredericksburg Expo & Conference Center along. Finishers can replenish with Dole Fruit Bowls®, Gatorade Thirst Quencher, and from Wegmans bottled water, trail mix and bananas.

Runners and spectators can reunite at the Family Link-up area, located outside the Expo Center. To coordinate link up, meet under the flag bearing the first letter of the runner's last name. The flags are designated as follows: A-B-C, D-E-F-G, H-I-J-K, L-M-N-O, P-Q-R-S, T-U-V-W-X-Y-Z.
