Interested in a way for your kids to burn off some of that endless energy they always seem to have and have a blast at the same time? Sign them up for the 2019 MCM Kids Run and let them join thousands of children challenging themselves and their friends in a 1-mile fun run. The event is scheduled for Saturday, October 26, in the Pentagon North parking lot.

About the Race

This year marks the 44th annual MCM Kids Run, an event that draws nearly 3,600 young runners ages 5 to 12 for an exciting, action-packed day presented by Virginia529. As a child-friendly offshoot of the Marine Corps Marathon, the race includes warm-ups led by uniformed Marines, plus Marine-presented medals at the finish line. Everyone will also enjoy pre- and post-run activities, entertainment, games, and more in the free family festival area. This fun, fitness-focused zone is open to runners, siblings, parents, and friends and features face painting, bounce houses, and a digital dance party.

Ready, Set, Register!

Registration for the 2019 MCM Kids Run is just $10 per child, and there are eight different start times between 9:30 a.m. and 11:50 a.m. The secure, kids-only course is an out-and-back that culminates at the Family Link Up tent. Three dozen uniformed Marines are located throughout the route, in the tent, and at the start and finish lines to ensure everyone’s safety.

For your convenience, free shuttle service will run continuously from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. between the Pentagon Metro station (yellow or blue line) and the MCM Kids Run start and finish area. Limited parking is available at South Pentagon Parking in lanes 20 to 26. You can also pay to park at the Fashion Center of Pentagon City, 1100 South Hayes Street in Arlington.
