Marathon
Washington, District of Columbia
Click to go to the web site for the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, District of Columbia

The USATF certified course starts in Arlington, VA, and winds its way through the Roslyn district along Lee Highway before turning on Spout Run and the George Washington Parkway. Runners will experience a climb on Lee Highway in the first few miles of the new course, but are rewarded with a descent along Spout Run and the parkway. After crossing the Key Bridge into Georgetown, you will be on familiar territory through the District of Columbia. You will pass the Kennedy Center before entering the Mall area and numerous monuments and memorials, such as, the Lincoln, FDR, Korean War and Vietnam Veteran's memorials, Washington Monument, and the U.S. Capitol. The marathon once again returns to Haines Point and "the Awakening" in East Potomac Park before passing the Jefferson Memorial. After crossing the 14th Street Bridge back to Virginia, you will venture to Crystal City, return past the Pentagon and finish at the Marine Corps War Memorial. It is truly a beautiful course and aptly nicknamed "The Marathon of the Monuments."

How to Avoid The Porta Potty During a Race
