2015 Marine Corps Marathon - Race Results

Today's Marine Corps Marathon marked the 40th anniversary of the scenic Washington, D.C. rite of fall, which proudly bills itself as "The People's Marathon." If you ran the Marine Corps Marathon, check the results page to see how you did.

As you'd expect, you can search by name, bib number, state, age group, and other criteria. The middle drop-down bar lets you view results from previous years of the Marine Corps Marathon. Supposedly you can find the results for the 10K race here as well, though  the drop-down menu on the left offers "Marine Corps Marathon" as the only choice. When viewing results, the right-hand column denotes "Marathon" or "10K" under Event, which may be as close as you can get.

You can also use the MapTrack feature to see where your favorite runners are on the course, if they're still out there.

Congrats, runners!
