Marine Corps Marathon transfer program opens today (June 11) through Aug. 31


Didn’t get into the Marine Corps Marathon this year? Starting today you can grab a bib through the MCM transfer program — open now through Aug. 31.

The guidelines, from marathon officials:

To initiate an official transfer, those currently registered must complete the MCM’s online transfer request form. Once the request is processed, the registered runner will receive an email including a specific code, password and hyperlink to the online transfer registration form. The registered runner will then forward this information to the individual now seeking to register for the 39th MCM.

All transfer requests must be completed by Aug. 31. The new runner will complete the transfer form and pay a $40 fee to finalize the transaction. All new runners must complete their 39th MCM registration no later than Sept. 23.

Original bib holders will not receive refunds, rather they must settle up with the new runner. Each entry can only be transferred once.

Still want to run, but not sure about 26.2? Marathon bib holders can transfer to the MCM10K without a transfer fee.
