Anticipation builds now that countdown has started for a very special day in October. Soon, crowds will be gathering in the street, people will be cheering everywhere, and you’ll finally get to suit up in the outfit that you’ve been saving in your closet. No, I’m not talking about Halloween, I’m talking about the 41st Marine Corp Marathon (MCM).
Held on October 30, 2016, in Arlington, Virginia, the “People’s Marathon” is organized by more than 1,800 volunteers. The race offers no prize money for finishers, but instead celebrates the honor, courage, and commitment of all athletes that participate in the race.
The MCM is ranked as “one of the largest marathons in the world and has been recognized as "Best Marathon in the Mid-Atlantic," "Best for Families" and "Best for Beginners" and even boasts a few celebrity finishers such as actor Drew Carey and TV megastar Oprah Winfrey.

Products with a Purpose
The MCM is a Gold certified event, a world-class running event that has met specific social and environmental criteria and held to the highest level of certification as presented by the Council for Responsible Sport for being both socially and environmentally conscious.
The MCM has also been awarded for their green efforts by encouraging participants to be mindful of their environmental impact and to use trash and recycling bins throughout the event with their Leave No Trace program. Volunteer groups are also invited to help clean up after the race along the marathon’s 26.2-mile course with the MCM’s Adopt a Mile program.
In alignment with the environmental values of the MCM, we repurposed the 2015 MCM finish line and vinyl banners to keep them out of landfills and to help you properly commemorate your experience.
