No More Straddling the Fence

Seemed perfectly reasonable back in March when you signed up for the MCM Lottery that you’d be trained up and ready to run in October. Uniquely, the MCM recognizes that even the most ambitious plans are sometimes derailed. Schedules change. Conflicts arise. Injuries occur. Reality sets in. Whatever the reason, the MCM offers runners an opportunity to bypass the 2016 MCM and defer an entry to the 2017 event. So now’s the time to hop off the MCM train if you’re all in a dither about running. Attack the uncertainty and initiate a deferment now. A small transaction fee will be charged. Only 1,600 deferments are available. Runners who defer to 2017 will be required to complete the 2017 registration form early next year. Hope you can run the 41st MCM. If not, it’s ok. See you in 2017.

Register for the Marine Corps Marathon Weekend

Recognized for impeccable organization on an iconic course managed by the US Marines in Arlington, VA and the nation’s capital, the Marine Corps Marathon is one of the largest marathons in the US and the world. Known as ‘the best marathon for beginners,’ the MCM is the largest marathon in the world that doesn’t offer prize money, earning its nickname, “The People’s Marathon.” The weekend also offers the MCM10K and MCM50K.
