RUN WITH THE MARINES
// YOUR MISSION
Conquer 26.2 miles across our nation's capital in the name of inclusion.
Every year, we paint Washington D.C. pink and black at the Marine Corps Marathon. Our teams fundraise to support Ainsley's Angels, completing the mission only after crossing the finish line, receiving the coveted race medal and celebrating inclusion.
If you choose to accept this challenge, you will set up a fundraising page and then you'll be added to our team Facebook group, where you'll receive support for your journey and make friends to last a lifetime.
Once we reach race weekend, you'll convene with your teammates the night before the race at our team dinner, and then kick off "The Peoples Marathon" bright and early the next morning. You'll take in historic sites and create memorable moments running a bucket-list race. To begin your journey towards running with the Marines, start with Step 1 below.
