Corps Marathon Celebrates Registration with Rosslyn
Community on March 7
QUANTICO, VA (February 29, 2012) - Come one, come all to
the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) Registration Roadshow in
celebration of the opening of registration for the
October marathon. The grand celebration is free and
open-to-all in Rosslyn, VA on Wednesday, March 7 from
noon to 1:30 p.m. In 2011, MCM registration closed in a
record 28 hours driving the MCM name to the top of the
Google trends list.
The running and non-running public is invited to this
traveling extravaganza on North Lynn Street outside
Rosslyn Metro Park for giveaways, prizes, tons of free
vintage MCM shirts and entertainment by Mix 107.3 FM.
The Registration Roadshow, co-hosted by the Rosslyn
Business Improvement District, occurs just prior to MCM
registration opening online to the public at 3 p.m. EST
on March 7 at www.marinemarathon.com.
The 37th MCM will be held on Oct. 28 in Arlington, VA
and the nation's capital. Registration will not be
available at the Roadshow.
"What better way to capture the excitement of
registration than to take 'The People's Marathon' to the
people of Rosslyn and Arlington for a lunch-time
celebration," says Rick Nealis, MCM Director.
"Thousands of runners are excited about making the
commitment to run this marathon, very often their first,
and we salute them as they embark on training for this
world class event."
Rosslyn is the location of the MCM Finish Festival where
triumphant runners and supportive spectators gather at
the conclusion of "The People's Marathon."
