2023 48th Marine Corps Marathon for Seymour Pink, Inc. Charity Partner

Sun October 29, 2023 Arlington, VA 22102 US


The MCM is the largest marathon in the world that does not offer prize money to its top finishers. Instead, the event is a celebration of every finisher’s HONOR, COURAGE and COMMITMENT to training for, and completing the MCM. With more than 2,000 Marines and Sailors supporting the organization of the event, runners have come to expect excellence in execution of the event and tremendous on-course support, earning the MCM recognition as a world-class running event.

The 48th MCM will be Sunday, October 29, 2023. SEYMOUR PINK has 50 entries for the 2023 Marine Corps Marathon, 20 entries for the 2023 MCM10K and 5 entries for the 2023 MCM 50K. To receive one of these entries, you must register here and pay the $50 deposit fee that will secure your spot on Team Seymour Pink. 

Seymour Pink requires a minimum fundraising level of $500.  You must fundraise this minimum by Friday, August 11, 2023 to participate this year.

MCM registration fees are not included in the $500 fundraising minimum. After reaching the fundraising minimum level, we will then send you a special registration link allowing you to register for your race affiliated with our charity partnership.   MCM charges each registrant additional fees from $69.95 to $232.00, depending on which race you will run.  You will need to register yourself for the race to ensure that all information is accurately entered - and please note this is time sensitive.  Once MCM closes their overall charity partner registration, even if you fundraised the minimum and received the link, we will not be able to get you into the race if you miss the deadline. Please register as soon as we send you the link this summer! 

We hope that you will join the 2023 Team Seymour Pink and help us reach our team goal of $50,000 in the fight against breast cancer.
