Marine Corps Marathon Announces Semper Fi Challenge
1 Apr, 2020
The Marine Corps Marathon has announced it will open the Semper Fi Challenge to runners who just can’t resist running with the Marines. Semper Fi Challenge participants will wear a unique bib and receive a special Semper Fi Challenge medal at the finish line of the Marine Corps Marathon after completing events in both May and October.
The Semper Fi Challenge is a new registration path that guarantees MCM entry for up to 4,000 runners when they sign up for the two-event challenge that includes both the Marine Corps Historic Half marathon hosted in Fredericksburg, Virginia and the Marine Corps Marathon. Runners can register for either the Historic Half or the Devil Dog Double on May 17, 2020 and for the MCM or the MCM50K on October 25, 2020.
In honor of the 45th anniversary, the entry fees for the MCM have been reduced by 4.5% from 2019. The price of the MCM50K, Devil Dog Double and Historic Half will not be affected.
