The Marine Corps Marathon weekend is here and I am ecstatic. Popularly known as “The People’s Marathon” and “Marathon of Monuments” it is one of the greatest marathons in the country and it happens in Arlington.
The course, which begins and ends near the Marine Corps War Memorial(Iwo Jima), takes the runners through our nation’s city monuments including the Pentagon, US. Capitol, Lincoln, Jefferson, Korean and Vietnam Memorials.
This year’s event will take place on 27 October and for those of us who will not be running, we will be able to see the runners in as many as five locations on the course. Since many roads will be closed for the day, the Metro will be the best way to get around but you consult the course map first as most locations are walkable.
Here are the five great spots to watch the runners:
- Begin the day off by watching the opening ceremonies at the MCM Start Line on Route 110 in Arlington. Get here by Metro using Rosslyn or Pentagon Station.
- Then make your way to the Lincoln Memorial in DC through the Arlington Memorial Drive. You will be able to see runners at mile 10 and later, mile 16 from this point.
- From the Memorial head east on Independence Avenue and make your way to the National Mall. Here you’ll see runners at miles 17-19.
- Next, get on Metro at the Smithsonian station and take it to the Crystal City Station. You’ll catch all the actions at miles 22 and 23 and also enjoy the Crystal City Family Festival where there will be live music, and a lot of fun family-friendly activities.
- Finally, head over to the legendary Marine Corps War Memorial by taking the Crystal City station to the Rosslyn station or the MCM shuttle from 23rd Street in Crystal City. There will be bleacher seating to watch your favorite runner cross the finish line.
