RacePacket was founded to connect runners to races in the DC area, and there is no race in town more iconic than the Marine Corps Marathon. Our connection to the MCM runs deep: the 40th Marine Corps Marathon marks RacePacket Chief Running Officer Bob Platt's 31st completed MCM and 31 years since he had the honor of participating in timing the 1984 MCM with 8 Apple II computers. The marathon has undergone major changes from that point, evolving into an experience that captivates the nation's capital for a week. This year we bring you a little something different. From the Press Conference and expo on Friday to the finish line Sunday this is the story of the 40th MCM viewed by a first-time marathoner, yours truly. Check out the features below to catch up on our weekend covering 'The People's Marathon'.
