Mark your calendars! General registration for the 2010 Marine Corps Marathon begins on April 7. You must act fast to nab one of the 30,000 spots in the October race: Last year, it sold out in just 16 days.
Why should you lace up your sneaks for the Marine Corps Marathon? It’s an incredibly supportive, military-friendly environment. Runners carry American flags and sport T-shirts with messages to friends who are serving overseas. To keep spirits high, Marines in uniform hand out drinks along the course. And the scenery couldn’t be more awe-inspiring: On your way to the finish line near the Iwo Jima Memorial, you’ll pass the Korean War Veterans Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Washington Monument, and more. There’s no question that this race deserves its nickname “The Marathon of the Monuments.”
