The Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) is the one of the Top 5 largest races in the US with more than 23,000 finishers.
The marathon was created in 1976 to promote the Marine Corps in a post-Vietnam war America. In 2006, a 10k race was added.
In 2019, a new 50 km ultra marathon is inaugurated.
The race begins in Arlington, VA, and runs along spectacular National Park landscape throughout the nation’s capital to the finish on the Marine Corps War Memorial in Rosslyn, VA.
