The Marine Corps Marathon Returns to Arlington This Weekend!


The Marine Corps Marathon is coming up this weekend, and this race offers something for everyone—whether or not you consider yourself a runner. For seasoned runners, it’s a highly competitive race (every year the top finishers strive to break records), but it’s also a very friendly race for beginners. In fact, race organizers are proud that the Marine Corps Marathon has a reputation for being one of the best marathons for beginners, so if you’re new to marathons, this might be just the race you’re looking for.

Not a runner at all? No problem. The marathon’s finishing line in Rosslyn, VA, doubles as a street festival that’s open to the public. Enjoy the music, grab yourself a bite to eat, and congratulate all the runners as they cross the finish line. Head to the website for more information, registration info, and a map of the route.
