The Marine Corps Marathon (MCM), in partnership with GEICO, is offering  a 15-percent discount for all Active Duty and Reserve military members registering for the 38th MCM that will be held on Sunday, Oct. 27. The registration discount will be available online starting at noon Eastern on Feb. 23 at www.marinemarathon.com through midnight EST on March 24. Military members registering during this four-week period will pay $84.15, rather than the full registration cost of $99.

Last year, 5,979 members of the military registered for the MCM through this special program. 

The 38th MCM will open for public registration at noon EST on March 27 at www.marinemarathon.com. In 2012, the MCM sold all available entries (capped at 30,000) in a record 2 hours, 41 minutes, setting a record for the fastest marathon registration sell out.
