The 47th Annual Marine Corps Marathon is returning to Washington, D.C., in person this weekend following a two-year hiatus.
On Sunday, Oct. 30, runners from all over the world will descend on the DMV to race on this winding course—known as both “The People’s Marathon” and “the best marathon for beginners”—taking runners through Arlington, Va., and D.C.
The marathon hasn’t been held in person since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2020 the marathon was canceled, while in 2021 it was held virtually.
“The Marines are excited to be back at a live event,” Master Sergeant Clinton Firstbrook said at a press conference in September.
In addition to the marathon, over the course of the weekend there will also be a health and fitness expo, 10K, a 50K, and a one-mile kid’s run. The marathon kicks off at 7:55 a.m. on Oct. 30.
