Registration for the event is $65 for runners ages 10 and above. Participants will receive a standout finisher’s medal, specially designed technical shirt, bib and "Access Granted" to the 47th MCM. To receive "Access Granted," runners must be 14 and older on MCM event day of Oct. 30. Sign up at  www.marinemarathon.com.
