2018 Marine Corps 10K

Marine Corps MarathonThe National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA) is pleased to announce that we have been selected to participate in the 2018 Marine Corps Marathon’s Charity Program. Team Stop The Clot® will be running the 10K for the first time on October 28, 2018.

Back in the nation’s capital with a picturesque start on the National Mall, the MCM10K hosts a 6.2 mile course from the US Capitol to the Marine Corps War Memorial. Participants will enjoy throngs of cheering spectators, entertainment, numerous landmarks and the inspirational finish at the Marine Corps War Memorial.

The MCM10K start line is located in front of the National Gallery of Art West Building on Madison Drive between 4th and 7th Streets NW. Runners line up facing the US Capitol. The USATF-certified MCM10K course will follow the MCM course around the National Mall to the 14th Street Bridge into Crystal City. There, the MCM10K course diverts from the MCM by making a right onto 15th Street. After arriving at the Pentagon, MCM10K runners will complete their 6.2 miles parallel to the MCM, finishing at the Marine Corps War Memorial. The course includes two water points and two aid stations.

The MCM10K features a wide variety of musical entertainment throughout the course. From the first mile to the last, runners and spectators are treated to inspiring artists, motivating music and exciting entertainment.
