Marine Corps Marathon Set To Return In Person This October

The Marine Corps Marathon will return this year after taking 2020 off due to COVID-19.

Race organizers have confirmed that the 46th annual event will be held “live and in-person” on Halloween (or, Oct. 31) in Arlington, Virginia, and the nation’s capital.

“Throughout my many years heading the MCM Organization, we have faced various challenges and hurdled them all, often repeating the Marine Corps mantra to ‘adapt and overcome,’” Rick Nealis, the Marine Corps Marathon Organization director, said in a Tuesday press release. “This year will be no different.”

The Marine Corps Marathon weekend includes the 46th annual marathon, as well as 50 km. and 10 km. races.  All three events also will be offered virtually as well. Registration here.
