2500 + 35= MCM
The MCM will share the celebration of its 35th anniversary with the 2500th anniversary of the battle of Marathon. It is only natural that an event organized by military would celebrate the sport's roots on the battlefield and the legendary run by Pheidippides from Marathon to the city of Athens. The flame from the city of Marathon will journey to the MCM start line and other special Greek-themed programs will occur throughout MCM Weekend. Details will be unveiled on the MCM website.

Healthy Kids Fun Run is a one-mile run for children ages 6-13 on October 30, the day prior to the MCM.
