MCM, MCM50K and MCM10K Live Event Sells Out   


Virtual entries remain for 46th Marine Corps Marathon, MCM50K and MCM10K

 

QUANTICO, VA (September 15, 2021) – More than 13,000 runners from all 50 states and the District of Columbia are now set to run live during Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) Weekend. The reduced number of participants is part of the COVID-19 precautions taken by the Marine Corps Marathon Organization (MCMO) to safely execute a live event for runners in 2021.  

 

Runners ranging from ages 7 to 86 in 28 countries around the world will be running the popular MCM events live on October 31. All participants who complete the live event will receive the official event shirt, a commemorative bib, a personalized digital finisher certificate and an impressive finisher medal. Runners will also have access to a digital event program, Track your Runner and MapTrack.

 

“This year marks the 46th anniversary of the race and we couldn’t be more excited to host the live event on Halloween,” said Rick Nealis, director of MCMO. “Coming out of the pandemic, this will be a treat, not a trick. Runners enjoy yourselves, be strong, adapt and overcome whether you run live or virtually.” 

 

Virtual entries are still available for the 46th MCM, MCM50K and MCM10K. Interested participants can register here. Runners previously registered for any of the MCM Weekend events can still secure the MCM Trifecta by entering the other two virtually. This challenge rewards finishers with a stunning challenge coin in addition to the corresponding finisher medal.
