A Marathon — and So Much More

For more than four decades, the Marine Corps Marathon has been a celebration of every finisher’s honor, courage and commitment. “The People’s Marathon” is the largest marathon in the world that doesn’t offer prize money, instead choosing to honor the efforts of all participants.At the Semper Fi Fund, we stand side-by-side with those we assist — for a lifetime, if necessary. We hope you’ll be a part of this historic race and run the MCM as a Semper Fi Fund Community Athlete side-by-side with us and with some of the service members and families we’ve assisted.

“There will be days when I don’t know if I can run a marathon. There will be a lifetime of knowing I have.” – Unknown
