Among the great benefits of being a good listener.

  1. You will be more appreciated by the people whom you talk to.
  2. You will get new points of view, new perspectives and new insights.
  3. You might get some good advice.

On Friday, Oct. 28 and Saturday, Oct. 29, after months of using the feet, runners are invited to use the ears to prepare for the MCM by attending one or more of the MCM Runners Conference sessions. You’ll be all ears at these free presentations getting expert insights on a variety of marathon-relevant topics. Advance registration is required but there’s no fee. Just plan your visit to the Health & Fitness Expo by allowing time to attend the Runners Conference. Both, the Expo and the Runners Conference, happen at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, the new MCM HQ hotel.

The schedule includes topics for long time runners and wet-behind-the-ears first timers with speakers including famed Olympians Billy Mills and Jeff Galloway, MCM Director Rick Nealis, as well as experts from MedStar Sports Medicine and others. If you listen to nothing else, then take the advice right here, and sign up for one or multiple sessions–they’re free!

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.
