Team Jarhead at The Marine Corps Marathon

Friday, October 28th, 2011

We are excited to announce that Team Jarhead’s 23 runners have raised more than $40,000 for the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation (MCSF) for the annual Marine Corps Marathon this Sunday, October 30 in Washington D.C.

In total, the larger marathon team supporting the MCSF has raised more than $145,000 for this year’s event, a new record for the organization. This will allow the MCSF to provide nearly 50 scholarships next year.

According to marathon organizers, “Thirty-thousand registered participants will embark on the 26.2-mile journey in the 36th MCM starting at 8 a.m., with live 90-minutes of coverage beginning on Comcast SportsNet at 7 a.m. The MCM promises a spectacular start with international flags from 54 different nations, the supersonic flyover of F/A-18 Hornet attack fighter jets and CH-53 Sea Stallion helicopters, and the firing of the M2A1 Howitzer.”

In its long history, the Marine Corps Marathon has not only made a name for itself in sheer size as the fifth largest U.S. Marathon, but stands as the largest marathon in the world that doesn’t offer prize money, earning its nickname, “The People’s Marathon.”

Raise A Toast to The USMC on November 10

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

As you may may know, Jarhead Red was first made in 1999 as a celebratory bottling for the annual Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation’s November Birthday Ball in Los Angeles. Over the years, the wine gained a following at other Marine Corps Birthday Balls, and we ultimately released the wine nationally to meet growing demand.

On that note, we encourage you to raise a toast to the birthday of the United States Marine Corps, which was established at Tun Tavern in Philadelphia on November 10, 1775. Click here for more information on the origins of the USMC.

Of course, any wine works for a toast, but for this particular toast, we believe that there’s no better wine for the occasion than Jarhead Red!
