Just under two months until the Marine Corps Historic Half, registration is moving quickly and runners are encouraged to spring into action to claim a spot in the 13.1 mile run or the new Semper 5ive to be held on May 15, 2016 in Fredericksburg, VA. Just about 70 percent of the Historic Half field has been filled and over 700 runners have already registered for the inaugural Semper 5ive, five-mile run held on the same day as the Half. Fill out your spring running calendar by adding a date to #RunWithTheMarines.

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.
