Motivated runners have a limited opportunity to sign up for both the half-marathon and full marathon to be put on by the Marine Corps next year in Fredericksburg and Washington.
Registration for the the “Semper Fi Challenge” opened Friday and continues through Monday, Nov. 11 — or until all entries are purchased. The Challenge guarantees entry to the D.C. marathon for up to 4,000 runners when they sign up to run both Fredericksburg’s Historic Half and Washington’s Marine Corps Marathon in 2020.
Semper Fi Challenge participants will wear a unique bib and receive a special medal at the finish line of the marathon after completing both events. The Fredericksburg event is scheduled for May 17, 2020, and the Washington one is set for Oct. 25, 2020.
