The Marine Corps Marathon is inspiration for days. Runners praised the on-course scenery through Rock Creek Parkway, around the historic National Mall, and a chill-inducing finish up toward the Iwo Jima Memorial in Arlington Cemetery. And with Marines cheering you on at every mile marker and every aid station, it’s hard to NOT give this race everything you’ve got.
The Marine Corps Marathon is now lottery-only, which is hardly surprising when you consider all the race has to offer.
