The Marine Corps Marathon Gender Defender 5K Race will be held on August 25 at 7 p.m. The event will be held at the Marine Corps Base in Quantico, Va.
Participants will take on a 3.1-mile course through the streets of Quantico.
Once the finish line is crossed, runners can receive comic books from Big Planet Comics, check out cars from Scion and sample various products ranging from Michelob Ultra to men's grooming products from comedian Jack Black.
Runners can also get pampered by Alexandria Massage and the W Salon.
"This VIP treatment at the finish line reflects everyone's favorite indulgences," says Rick Nealis, MCM Director.
All participants will receive a pink or blue t-shirt. Those that finish the race will receive a Gender Defender race coin and a carnation or commemorative bottle opener. Award winners will earn MCM champagne flutes and beer steins.
Ages 16 and older are eligible to run in the event; the registration fee is 35.
