The 45th Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) offers a special experience hosted by the men and women who defend our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of running marathons. We are pleased to offer a guaranteed entry with a minimum hotel stay of two nights for this very popular marathon!
MCM has been recognized as “Best Marathon in the Mid-Atlantic,” “Best for Families” and “Best for Beginners.” It is also known as the "Marathon of Monuments" since the course runs along many of the iconic national monuments of Washington, D.C. and the "People's Marathon" as it is focuses on strengthening community spirit, promoting good health, and showing support for veterans. Runners from all 50 states and more than 50 countries participate each year.
As an official tour operator, Marathon Tours & Travel can offer assistance in booking your hotel for marathon weekend. Our experienced staff, some who have run the marathon themselves, can also assist you with other travel services such as securing the best airfare, transfers from the airport, etc.

We stayed at the Hyatt Centric Arlington again this year. A great hotel that is located minutes to and from the start line. I love this hotel not only for the location but the excellent customer service
Loved the Le Meridian; staff was very friendly and accommodating to runners.
The Marine Corps Marathon is an awesome event. It is dear to me because both of my sons, as well as their wives are Marines. I run it in support of them and hope to get my sons to participate at least once. I look forward to this race every year. It so inspiring seeing the veterans run, running the Blue Mile and also witnessing the wound veterans along the course. The Marine Corps Marathon is truly the "People's Race." You can find inspiration throughout the course.
