    Washington, DC

Participants in the MCM10K (6.2 miles) will run the streets of the nation's capital and finish at the iconic Marine Corps War Memorial in Rosslyn, VA. The new start is located at the intersection of 12th St and Madison Dr on the National Mall. The first two miles of the course tours the National Mall from the National Gallery of Art to the Capitol and past the Smithsonian Castle. After two miles, the course crosses the Potomac River on the 14th Street Bridge and runs to Crystal City. The MCM10K course diverts from the marathon's by making a right onto 15th Street. After arriving at the Pentagon, MCM10K runners will complete their 6.2 miles in parallel to the MCM, finishing at the Marine Corps War Memorial.

Opening festivities begin at 7:45 a.m. with the start at 7:55 a.m. Runners are required to maintain a 15 minute-per-mile pace to participate in this event. Due to safety concerns, the MCM10K's USATF-certified course cannot accommodate wheelchair and handcycle participants.
