Congratulations on your decision to participate in the 42nd Marine Corps Marathon through the very exclusive MCM Four Star Registration Package. The two-night fee is $1,800. Runners have the option of adding a third night for a small additional fee. The Four Star Registration is non-refundable, non-transferrable, non-deferrable and may not be cancelled. Purchase of this package represents a commitment that reflects that of being a Marine--All In!
Four Star Registration includes two guaranteed entries, one entry into the 42nd MCM on October 22, 2017 and a second guaranteed entry to share with another individual for either the 2017 MCM or MCM10K. Following the completion of the Four Star Registration form, an email will be sent with a link within three days to register for the second 2017 entry based on stated preference.
Enjoy the ease and attention that comes with being a Four Star runner throughout MCM Weekend. No waiting in lines! Runners will enjoy fast pass admission to Packet Pick-up at the Health & Fitness Expo on October 20-21, 2017 at the Gaylord National Resort. On the morning of the MCM, Four Star runners will be transported in a 'Runners-Only" luxury shuttle directly to Runners Village, where a Four Star Welcome Tent awaits with light refreshments, private port-a-potties and more appealing amenities. Also, runners will be provided two Metro SmarTrip cards for transportation from the finish line to the Gaylord shuttles at Eisenhower Metro station.
The Four Star package is highlighted by the inclusion of two passes to a special MCM Weekend kickoff on Friday evening, October 20 featuring light appetizers, music and dancing; a delightful brunch and inspirational speaker on Saturday morning, October 21; and the pre-MCM pasta dinner known as the Carbo Dining In on Saturday evening, October 21. This motivational event includes a delicious pasta buffet prepared expressly for carb loading on the eve of the MCM. Sit in reserved seating and be enthralled by a world class featured speaker and patriotic music performances. Prior to the pasta dinner, celebrate MCM Weekend at an exclusive reception in your honor hosted by the MCM Director.
The 2017 MCM Four Star Registration hosts runners at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center. Featuring a 19-story glass atrium overlooking the Potomac River, MCM Four Star runners will appreciate Gaylord National's award-winning service, dining, shopping and entertainment and convenience to MCM Events - all under one roof. Guest rooms offer mini-fridge, coffee maker and two bottled waters per day. Bathrooms are beautifully appointed with granite countertops, dual-sinks, and marble floors. All hotel fees are included in the overall Package pricing.
Any hotel-related inquiries prior to the week of the MCM, should be directed to onPeak and not the Gaylord National Resort. onPeak, the MCM housing partner, manages all hotel reservations and can provide support as needed. In October, Four Star runners will receive the eCard featuring the official bib number. This eCard serves as a Fast Pass to a dedicated Four Star check-in counter at Packet Pick-up. Runners will present the eCard and receive a welcome packet including the official limited edition Four Star bib, a Four Star itinerary and other event tickets and amenities.
