Celebrating MCM History
Marine Corps Marathon is annually ranked as one of the largest marathons in the US and the world. Motivated individuals run the MCM as a tribute to a loved one serving this country or in memory of their sacrifice. They run in defiance, while facing an illness, whether their own or a loved one's. They run to show love of country. The MCM welcomes those finding a new path to fitness and those simply seeking to conquer a distance that once seemed impossible. Organized by the men and women of the United States Marine Corps, the MCM celebrates the honor, courage and commitment of all finishers. Held in Arlington, VA, National Harbor, MD and the nation’s capital, the MCM hosts runners from all 50 states and more than 60 countries.
Where is the start? What support is on course? What does 'beat the bridge' mean? What happens at the finish? Our answers give you the confidence you need to run your best. Knowing is half the battle.
