Look for the MCM Booth at upcoming event expos to secure a spot for next year
QUANTICO, Va. - A limited number of guaranteed entries to the 2010 Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) will be available to runners and guests at running events across the country and around the world in preparation for the 35th anniversary race.
Would-be marathoners should visit the MCM booth at the designated events to receive an entry code, redeemable online at www.MarineMarathon.com. A limited number of entry codes are available at each event and are expected to go quickly.
"We're kicking off the celebration for our 35th anniversary by offering runners a unique chance to get into the MCM long before it opens to the general public," said Rick Nealis, Director. "This is the MCM's way of thanking runners for their dedication not only to the Marine Corps Marathon but to the sport of running."
The 2010 MCM will be held on Sunday, October 31 in Arlington, Virginia and the nation's capital. Online registration will be available to the general public in Spring 2010. The marathon is open to runners ages 14 and older on a first come, first served basis. The race field is limited and historically fills in just a few days.
MCM weekend includes the Health and Fitness Expo, MCM10K, Healthy Kids Fun Run and more.
