One of the largest marathons in the United States and in the world, the Marine Corps Marathon returns to the nation's capital for its 41st year. Main running events will take place in Arlington, VA, and the fitness expo while other events will take place in Prince William County, VA, and Prince George County, MD, just a short drive away.
The series of running events for different skill levels and age groups typically start in April and run through November. Make your way to Arlington for the MCM, MCM Kids Run and MCM10K. The Historic Half takes place in Fredericksburg, VA, and the MCM Event Series is hosted on or near Marine Corps Base Quantico. The MCM Health & Fitness Expo takes place at the Gaylord National Harbor and Convention Center this year.
The 2017 Marine Corps Marathon will be held on October 30, 2016, accommodating for 30,000 registered participants. The start line is located on Route 110 halfway between the Pentagon and Arlington Memorial Drive. Post-event festivities will take place in the Finish Festival in Rosslyn, VA, and are open to both spectators and runners. Head here for free massages, beverages in the Michelob Ultra beer garden, live entertainment, giveaways and food vendors.
Staying at the Morrison-Clark Historic Inn & Restaurant during MCM events puts you within a short drive of the running tracks and festivities. Look forward to sophisticated, boutique style accommodations and contemporary amenities in our classic downtown Washington, DC hotel.
