You can once again conquer the Semper Fidelis Challenge in 2022! Runners who successfully complete the following LIVE events will be eligible:

  • Marine Corps Historic Half (MCHH) or the Devil Dog Double on May 22, 2022
  • Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) or MCM50K on October 30, 2022.

Finishers will receive an exclusive Semper Fidelis Challenge medal, in addition to the individual race medals, upon completion of the MCM or MCM50K.


For this year, runners will register individually for each race. Registration for the MCHH Events opens on December 1, 2021 and registration for the MCM Weekend Events opens on February 16, 2022. Deferred registrations will count toward the challenge as long as the runner finishes the live event in 2022. The Marine Corps Marathon Organization will track who qualifies for the challenge in-house.

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.
