Marine Corps Marathon Sells Out of All Discounted Military Entries for October Event

QUANTICO, VA (March 8, 2016) - In just six days, the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) has sold all discounted entries made available to active duty and Reservists registering to run the 41st MCM on Oct. 30. The discount began as active duty/Reserve registration opened on April 2 at www.marinemarathon.com.

The entries were offered through the MCM's partnership with GEICO, which provided a 15 percent off the full MCM registration cost of $135. There were 2,500 entries available. 

"We are thrilled military members have responded to obtain their spot in 'The People's Marathon,' says Rick Nealis, MCM Director. "We look forward to a great event this October."

Military members not able to obtain one of the limited discounted entries still can register during the MCM Lottery, which opens to the public on March 24 and remains open through March 30. Once the Lottery closes, those selected will be notified about their registration starting March 31. MCM Lottery registration will be available at www.marinemarathon.com

The 41st MCM will be held on Sunday, Oct. 30 in Arlington, VA and throughout the nation's capital, visit www.marinemarathon.com for more information.

The Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) is voted the "Best Marathon in the Mid Atlantic" and "Best Marathon for Spectators." The MCM honors the dedication, sportsmanship and patriotism of its participants. Also known as "The People's Marathon," runners from all walks of life participate in the MCM, the largest marathon not to offer prize money. The 41st MCM will be held on October 30, 2016 in Arlington, VA. No federal or Marine Corps endorsement is implied. #RunWithTheMarines
