Inspired by a post-Vietnam era memo, "The People's Marathon" has hosted inspired and motivated individuals for over four decades.
The MCM is one of the largest marathons in the US and the world and stands as the largest marathon in the world that doesn't offer prize money, earning its nickname, "The People's Marathon." The MCM has been voted “Best Marathon in the Mid Atlantic,” “Best Marathon for Charities” and “Best Spectator Event." Hosted annually in the Arlington, VA and the nation's capital, the MCM offers an experience for runners to tour the nation's most recognizable landmarks while being supported by the men and women of the United States Marine Corps.
This year, all events for the 2020 Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) Weekend scheduled for Friday, October 23 through Sunday, October 25 in Arlington, Virginia and the nation’s capital will shift to virtual-only status, due to ongoing public health concerns and the guidelines of local governments.
