‘Marine Corps Marathon’

OK, so you “missed” registering and training for this year’s Marine Corps Marathon. No biggie! You can still participate in the festivities by running the Marine Corps 10K. This 6 mile race will make its debut in 2009, on the same morning (Sunday, October 25) as the full marathon, so you get the pre-race nerves, course cheering and post-race hospitality. The course starts on the Mall, takes you around the Pentagon and ends up at the Marine Corps War Memorial. What better way to experience DC, then running through its streets in honor of our nation’s servicemen and women. Oo-raah!
The 10K is not new. The course might be new, but the MCM 10K itself is not. It’s been around for 3 years.
The first year the 10K appeared was 2006. The course is indeed new in 2009.
