Do you dream of running through our nation's capital? The George Washington University (GW) Cancer Center has your guaranteed entry to the 43rd annual sold-out Marine Corps Marathon and MCM10K. For the ninth year in a row, the GW Cancer Center is teaming up with the Marine Corps Marathon as a charity partner. 

When you join the GW Cancer Center's team, you receive the benefit of knowing your fundraising dollars are going to help cancer patients throughout the District of Columbia and nationally through our training and education programs. Learn more about the patients we serve; like Vincent Jones, a four-year survivor of multiple myeloma, or Amy Jones, a stage 4 breast cancer survivor. Your support enables us to fulfill our mission to drive transformational research, personalized therapy, family-centered care and cancer policy in the nation's capital.

Please note that our registration process has changed from previous years. You must meet the fundraising minimum of $750 for the marathon or $425 for the 10K in order to receive your registration code for the race. Please note that fundraising minimums do not include registration fees, which are paid directly to the Marine Corps Marathon. The deadline to register and meet your fundraising minimum is August 28, 2018.
