31st Marine Corps Marathon

This year "The People's Marathon" will be held on October 29, 2006. A new challenge has been added this year - the Marine Corps Marathon Squad Challenge. Teams of 9-13 individuals will compete and the finish time of the 9th team member to cross the line will be the team's finish time. Participants are encouraged to show their team spirit by wearing unit clothing, carrying a team flag, or by running in formation.

Additionally, this year's race will have remote runners for the first time. Dubbed Marine Corps Marathon Forward, it will allow servicemembers serving in Iraq to participate in the race via satellite. Registered runners that complete MCM Forward will receive an official finisher medal, certificate, and CD.
