Want to join Team RWB for one of the best marathons in the country?! The Marine Corps Marathon is a great race, whether it is your first or 20th marathon (there is a reason registration closed in 28 hours)! You will run, with tens of thousands of your closet friends, through the streets of Washington DC, finishing on a hill near the Iwo Jima Memorial. There is great crowd support, the weather is typically perfect for running, and you can do it all with Team RWB! There will be a Team RWB pre-race dinner and post-race party. So, come run for a great cause, see the beautiful sights in DC, and spend some time with your RWB friends! Mark your calendar – the race is Sunday, October 30 at 8 AM!
-Were you lucky enough to register for the race in February when it opened?

Our runners that fundraise a minimum of $100 will be provided a Team RWB shirt and a ticket to our pre-race pasta dinner at no charge. Go to www.firstgiving.com/teamrwb to get started.
Awareness: If you are interested in supporting Team RWB and helping to get the word out about our cause, but don’t feel comfortable fundraising, you are still welcome on the team! We simply ask that you pay $20 for your shirt and will be asked to pay for your meal at the pre-race pasta dinner (price TBD).
-Not yet registered for the race, but still want to run? It’s not too late!
Through our Charity Partnership with the Marine Corps Marathon, runners that were not able to register for the race during open registration are given another opportunity. To cover the cost of forming this charity partnership, as well as providing funding for our veteran programs, we ask that all charity partner runners commit to fundraise a minimum of $400.
The registration process:
- Complete the Team RWB Charity Partnership Marathon Registration Form and email it to [email protected]. You will receive an email confirmation about your registration from Team RWB, however you will not receive one from race officials until a later date. You will be given a link to our online donation website. Please create a page within this site to track your fundraising.
- Once all our charity partner registration spots are filled, Team RWB will finalize the registration process with race coordinators, you will not receive a confirmation email from the Marine Corp Marathon until this time. This step may not take place until as late as August, however spots may fill earlier.
- Race officials will email an e-confirmation card on September 20, please print this information, as you will need it at packet pick-up.
- During this process you will receive information from Team RWB about reserving your seat at our pre-race pasta dinner on October 29. This dinner is provided free of charge for our charity partner runners, as a thank you for your support. As a charity partner runner, you will also receive a Team RWB wicking shirt.
