QUANTICO, VA – The Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) sold out on Friday, June 9 with a record 34,000 participants for the October 29 event.  Thousands of runners hit the MCM website, www.marinemarathon.com, as registration opened on May 17 at noon eastern to ensure their spot on the Arlington, VA start line.  Dan Jones of Manassas, VA was the first runner to register online. Jones was one of 13,258 runners, or nearly 4 per second, registered in the first hour of rolling registration.

4000 more than 2005 

 “I am thrilled that we are able to welcome 34,000 runners to this year’s event- 4,000 more than in 2005,” said Rick Nealis, Race Director. “The longer registration time allowed more runners to register online, and contribute to the total record race field which includes the MCM runners club, 2005 deferments, active duty registration and our important charity partner program.”
