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.
Bravo Zulu is a naval signal meaning, “Well Done.” The BZ challenge coin will be distributed to individuals who complete all three events.
Registration for the virtual MCM and MCM50K events opens to the public on Thursday, July 2 at noon Eastern at www.marinemarathon.com and cost $45 per entry. MCM10K registration remains open at $33 per entry.
