Marine Corps Marathon

Join the Wounded Warriors Family Support Team in the Marine Corps Marathon held in Washington, D.C. on October 28, 2012! The Marine Corps Marathon, founded in 1975, is the 4th largest marathon in the United States and annually attracts 30,000 runners. With no qualifying race required, the MCM is open to any runner 14 years or older. However, this accessibility causes the marathon to sell out very quickly—usually within days of open registration.

The Marine Corps Marathon honors the dedication, sportsmanship and partiotism of its participants. Runners from all walks of life participate in the 4th largest marathon, earning the name "The People's Marathon. Wounded Warriors Family Support is offering a very limited number of spots to runners who would like to advocate for the families of those who have been wounded, injured or killed during combat operations.

Our registration fee of only $500 is one of the lowest of all the MCM Charity Partners and includes the race registration fee. Why run for the Wounded Warriors Family Support Team? Since 2003 Colonel John Folsom, USMCR (Retired) has sought to “heal the unseen wounds that medicine cannot” by providing respite and reconnection for our military families. Your partnership will insure that Wounded Warriors Family Support can continue to spread its mission. Your registration includes:

  • Runner’s jersey
  • Wounded Warriors Family Support Hospitality Tent
  • Spectator support packet
  • Access to all MCM maps, training information, spectator guides, and travel/lodging information
