Marine Corps Marathon, D.C.

Washington, D.C.

The Marine Corps Marathon, known as 'the best marathon for beginners,' is the largest marathon in the world that doesn't offer prize money, earning its nickname, “The People's Marathon.”  You’ll tackle 26.2 miles starting in Arlington, VA and tour downtown DC past the Lincoln Memorial, Tidal Basin, and multiple national museums to finish at the Marine Corps War Memorial.  When you run with Parkinson's Champions you will be running through our nation’s capital to achieve a personal goal. But for the 1 million Americans living with Parkinson's disease, your run means so much more.

  • Guaranteed race entry
  • Parkinson's Champions running singlet for race day
  • Personalized online fundraising page
  • Invitation to race weekend events including pre-race pasta party for you and a guest
  • One-on-one fundraising support
