The USAA Grand Prix Series Marine Corps Half Marathon scheduled for Saturday, September 12, 2020 aboard Marine Corps Base, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina will be offered as virtual-only race, due to ongoing health concerns and the guidelines of local governments pertaining to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We understand this may be disappointing for many, but with a race of this size we were unable to assure social distancing, and the health and safety of our runners is our first priority.
The Virtual Marine Corps Half Marathon will include a 13.1 and 5 mile options. Runners will have until September 12, 2020 to register for the Virtual Marine Corps Half Marathon.
All participants will receive a race package - including a commemorative t-shirt, bib, and finisher medal. Runners will receive a 3 inch finisher medal for the 5 miler and a 4 inch finisher medal for the half marathon. Race packages will be available for pick-up at Wallace Creek Fitness Center or mailed 2-4 weeks after registration ends on September 12, 2020.
Runners who have completed the 2020 Extreme Endurance and St. Paddy’s Engineer Challenges are able to earn the 6” Trifecta medal by completing the Marine Corps Half Marathon Virtual Run 13.1 or 5 mile course.
