Held in Arlington, VA and Washington, DC, the mission of the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) is to promote physical fitness, generate community goodwill, and showcase the organizational skills of the United States Marine Corps.
The MCM was established in 1976 and is currently the fourth largest marathon in the United States and the ninth largest in the world. The event field of 30,000 is composed of runners from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and more than 50 countries. Known as "The People's Marathon," the MCM is open to all runners ages 14 and above and is the largest marathon that does not offer prize money.
The 42nd MCM and 10K will take place on Sunday October 22, 2017, a few weeks before the United States Marine Corps birthday on November 10.
