The MCM10K will be a virtual-only event in 2020. Runners must complete the 6.2 mile distance between September 27 through November 10 (Marine Corps Birthday). Runners across the country and around the world can bring the spirit of the MCM10K to sidewalks, trails or favorite local routes. All runners receive by mail the official MCM10K shirt, commemorative bib and the stunning 2020 finisher medal. Participants will be required to submit proof of performance for official finisher results.
Registration for the virtual MCM10K is closed.
Registered runners receive a confirmation email detailing all relevant information related to the virtual event and results submission by November 10, 2020.
For the first time in MCM history, ambitious runners can register for three MCM Weekend events through a combination of virtual or live MCM and MCM50K and the virtual MCM10K to complete the Trifecta. This once-in-a-lifetime challenge will reward finishers with a stunning challenge coin in addition to the corresponding finisher medals.
Registration for the virtual MCM and MCM50K events remain open and cost $45 per entry. As MCM10K registration is closed, only those participants who are already registered for the MCM10K may still register to participate in the Trifecta by signing up for the MCM and MCM50K.
Virtual Finish Line
Virtual participants are encouraged to post photos on social media using #VirtuallyUnstoppable. Share the route and showcase your virtual finish line and post-run celebration.
The MCM10K Audio Experience by Motigo offers all virtual runners the opportunity to hear the authentic sounds and actual voices from the event while running in locations across the country. The special audio messages will play alongside the music or whatever else runners are listening to in their earbuds on a virtual run.
By downloading the free app, MCM10K runners will hear specially recorded motivational and informational messages as they reach designated distance milestones on their personal courses. Some messages are inspirational; others will share what landmarks runners would be passing were they running the actual course in the Arlington, VA and the nation’s capital.
Runners will hear the actual MCM emcee make the official start line motivational announcements; get special cheer messages from MCM Director Rick Nealis; Col Will Bentley, Commander, Marine Corps Base Quantico; and others.
Participants can also invite their own friends and family to record cheer messages specifically for them.
This service will be available beginning in September.
