The Marine Corp Marathon, Outer Banks style

 

by Tom Mattingly, Outer Banks Flotilla

Every year on the last Sunday in October, the Marine Corp Marathon – “The People’s Marathon” – is run on a course through downtown Washington, D.C. There are more than 40,000 runners and the crowd along the 26.2 mile course is estimated in the hundreds of thousands. This event is organized and managed by active duty Marines, most of them based in the Washington area.

For the first time ever, the event was canceled because of the pandemic.
