Marine Corps Marathon releases app


Ready, set … download.

Officials at the Marine Corps Marathon have released an app to give runners and spectators essential event information such as weather reports, transportation details and maps. The app will also aggregate social media information and include sharing tools and a shortcut to the official MCM Facebook and Twitter pages.

Friends and family can sign up to follow runners through the app’s “track a runner” system.

“The app also serves as a valuable tool in relaying important updates,” says Rick Nealis, MCM race director.

Free for iOS and Android.
