The 41st annual Marine Corps Marathon takes place this Sunday in the nation's capital.
With roughly 20,000 annual racers, the Marine Corps Marathon is one of the 15 largest annual marathons in the world. The Marine Corps Marathon is also the largest marathon in the world not to reward prize money, dubbing the event by many to be "The People's Marathon."
The 2016 Marine Corps Marathon is a date runners of all levels have had circled for over a year, and with the start time just days away, and Washington, D.C. expecting excellent weather, the event is sure to be a memorable one.
