Team Jarhead at The Marine Corps Marathon

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.”
