WHEN: Sunday, 25 October
WHERE: MCRD Parris Island Parade Deck
Units from MCAS Beaufort and MCRD Parris Island are invited to compete in this year’s Marine Corps Marathon Takes on the Lowcountry event.
Unit funds will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams from MCAS Beaufort and MCRD Parris Island.
1st place: $1,000
2nd place: $750
3rd place: $500
Each team MUST complete eight (3.275 mile) loops. Teams can have a maximum of eight (8) runners; each runner is responsible for completing at least one full loop.
Please see team examples below:
- A team can have 8 runners with each runner completing one loop
- A team could have 4 runners with each runner completing two loops
- A team could have 5 runners with 3 runners completing two loops and 2 runners completing one loop each
Teams can strategize as necessary, however full loops must be completed as runners cannot start a loop and have someone finish that same loop for them. The team MUST complete the total of 26.2 miles.
