Until event day August 22nd
Update Coronavirus (COVID-19)
The Marine Corps Marathon Organization (MCMO) is rescheduling events originally planned for June 20. Now, the Belleau Wood 8K and Recon Ruck will occur alongside the Quantico 12K on August 22, 2020 with corresponding virtual options. Run Amuck will become a do-it-yourself, virtual-only experience. Additionally, the Quantico Tri will be removed from the event schedule and be replaced by a virtual Marine Corps Duathlon. Registration for these events will resume on Wednesday, May 20, 2020.
When a standard run doesn't satisfy the desire for more, choose the harder thing and ruck it. The Recon Ruck sends participants into Quantico's hills, trails and roadways for a 12K journey while wearing a weighted pack.
